I have Ubuntu 13.04 running off of a live USB which was created using PenDriveLinux. It works great, but I'm having a problem. When creating the USB, I selected the data persistence option, and set it to the highest value (~4GB), since I have a large flashdrive. However, whenever I boot up, and select the USB as the boot device, it takes me to a screen that gives me the option of trying or installing. It makes sense to ask the first time, but this keeps happening everytime I boot into Ubuntu, and the data I saved to test, is gone. Is there a step I missed to configure the persistent disk inside Ubuntu?

Thanks for any help!
