Switch to a persistent system

See the Modes page to have more information about the Persistent mode.

Advanced tab of the Linutop Setup tool

To make your system persistent, run the Linutop Setup tool which can be done using the Applications > Parameters menu. To configure the data persistence, open the Advanced tab, you will get the window shown on the left of this paragraph.

Check the persistent option

Now, you just need to check the full persistent system item and to close the dialog by clicking the Ok button. A dialog will pop up, notifying you that a reboot is needed.

Be careful: the system will only be persistent after the reboot ! All actions performed on the system before rebooting will not be taken into account.
