I am considering creating a Live Ubuntu USB drive and running Ubuntu just from it.
So, what bad things would happen if I was running Ubuntu and doing stuff and my flash drive got bumped out of socket? I'm pretty certain that I'd lose whatever I hadn't saved, but what other corruptions or disasters might occur? And are there settings that could be set to minimize the damage?
Can anyone help me know the risks? I'd rather not just wait and find out.
