I have my Ubuntu installed on a flash drive. When doing any change to it, the changes are lost when booting. Is there a way to save the changes on the USB?

Thank you, Fahd

  • It must be a live usb – kenn Feb 14 '14 at 13:35

You have to make your Ubuntu live usb persistant.So that any installed programs won't lost after rebooting.

What would be the differences between a persistent USB Live Session and a installed Ubuntu in a USB drive?

see this for how to make livecd persistence using loopback file.
