The Windows 10 burned ISO comes out around 4.56GB or so, so too large for a 4GB USB Flash drive or even a 4.3GB DVD-R disc, so you need at least a 8GB USB Flash drive. It's safe to use anything from 8 to 32GB. Older computers sometimes don't recognize 64GB flash drive.

It fits within the parameters. As long as the drive is healthy, it should work. Only one way to find out.
