I have been using a persistent mode USB when the hard disk of my laptop crashed. I like to mount the USB files on another computer running Ubuntu 12.10. From what I found after internet search, the file system is saved as squashfs file. The only squashfs file was /casper/filesystem.squashfs . I mounted this file using disks application (it used /dev/loop0 device ). However, I could not find the files that I had saved while running from the USB.
The files were saved in /home/ubuntu/Downloads. The mounted filesystem has no folder under the home directory. What should I do to retrieve the file on this computer. I do not have the permission to reboot this computer from the persistent USB. I just need the files saved inside the persistent file.
