Yes. What should be the USB flash drive volume? Which manufacturer is more reliable? What version of USB flash drive to take?

8GB for the eyes , I think no matter what the manufacturer, don't forget to sign the drive : version and which driver you added (if necessary)
Good advice! Thank you! - jarret54 commented on March 23rd 20 at 18:57

I took the 16G Kingston. Although it is possible and 8G would be enough, but there is now a difference - well, just about anything. Manufacturer - Kingston, Transcend. IMHO, of course.

4GB is enough if you want to longer living, then take 16GB.
The manufacturer is in my opinion a matter of taste, every manufacturer has models successful and unsuccessful, it is necessary to read reviews, see features, but I'm not bothered, it's better to bother a reliable backup and recovery.
Here just VMware free. Yet. In addition to snapshots and no backups. - jarret54 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:01
@jarret54, snapshots better not to use as backups - mortimer.Kreiger12 commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:04

Stick any of the 4G.
Don't forget to reconfigure the preservation of the logs is not on the stick but, for example, on the local store to USB flash drive live longer.

+ backup the configuration of ESXi host to another storage medium, so that in case of departure of the stick quickly to restore everything.
