Ok, so you have a USB flash drive with a bootable distro of Linux running on it, and you know how useful and convenient it is. The only problem is that you can’t get more than 4GB’s of persistent storage. Well that is not true, you can!
In this tutorial i show you how to increase the size of your persistence and make it as large or as small as you want. This technique works on 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and larger flash drives.
The reason why you are limited to 4GB’s of persistence is due to the file size limitation of FAT32, which are 4GB for any single file. As your persistent storage is actually just a file on your USB flash drive it’s size is governed by the FAT32 file size limit.
This tutorial will take you through the steps of replacing the persistence file with a new partition on your USB flash drive to get more storage space.
