Is System rescue usb filesystem persistent? [newbie]

Postby PaulJ27 » 26 Dec 2016, 20:13

Downloaded system rescue image and placed on usb stick,
It boots ok and system rescue launches. All Good.

Can navigate around system rescue file system and run commands.

If i create a file, will it still be on the usb stick when I reboot system rescue?

( exact reason for question is I'm running ddrescue and using a logf ile to record progress . I want to know if log file will still be on usb stick after system rescue reboot ?)


Thanks

you can add a backstore file to the USB stick.
This file keep the current filesystem state at reboot.

It is also possible to mount /livemnt/boot (the USB-stick filesystem) rw:
mount /livemnt/boot -o remount,rw

Then you can create and read files in this directory.
