Persistence only for specific folders

Post#1 by mczero » 26 Oct 2016, 08:00

Hello,

first I would like to thank the whole Porteus community for the work that has been done.
I like Porteus very much, but have just begun using it. I used a Debian Custom Live CD before, which was cool, but unhandy in some parts.

Porteus is better. But there is one thing which I miss. Debian Live CD/USB can have a persistence.conf file, which specifies which folders you want to have persistence on.
Because I use USB drives for Porteus, I am
1) concerned about flash wear off, when too much data is written and
2) speed. Less data to be written on flash drive means more speed.

So, is there a cheat code or something to specify which folders I want to have persistence on? If not, how can I achieve something like that?

Thank you very much! :beer:

Hi welcome to porteus :)
i think what you're looking for is Magic Folders
there is a function in the 'Porteus Settings Center' to help set it up..
