Description

A user reported not seeing that Tails needed at least an 8Gb USB stick until being in the middle of the installation process.
It seems that we only specify that in the overview pages of the installation guide, and, I think it would be great to say it as well in https://tails.boum.org/doc/about/requirements

Good idea!

Right now, it's displayed in the 2 page of the installation instructions:

https://tails.boum.org/install/win/

That's 2 click away from the homepage and quite far from "the middle of the installation process".

I doubt that putting it in /doc/about/requirements will be useful for more people but it won't hurt so → yes! but low prio.

I missed that :)

I agree (though if I were to search for this particular information, I would go to that page first)
