Two possibilities:

If your changes cheatcode is changes=EXIT then they are only saved when you do a shutdown. If you loose power and the system doesn't shutdown you loose the changes made since the prior shutdown.

If your changes exceed the size of your save.dat file you will loose your changes.

Try:

Code: Select all

mkdir s
sudo mount /mnt/sdb4/porteussave.dat  s
Example:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ mkdir s
guest@porteus:~$ sudo mount ssr.dat s
guest@porteus:~$ ls s
lost+found/  usr/
guest@porteus:~$ tree s
s
├── lost+found [error opening dir]
└── usr
    └── bin
        ├── SimpleScreenRecorder-0.3.8+1.glibc2.14-x86_64.AppImage
        └── tree
3 directories, 2 files
Good luck. :)
