Where did my files go?

Tue Jan 23, 2018 5:52 am

I like my RPI so much I wanted to be able to develop for it when I was on other machines. I made a bootable USB drive, and it runs really well on 2 different machines, with one big issue.

I can write C code, save it, compile it with gcc, and then run the program I wrote. Awesome, however, when I exit to close down the machine, the files, both source and executable, I just made and saved are gone.

I always select @Run with persistence@. Which brings up a related issue, settings aren't saved either. Every time I boot into Raspbian my keyboard goes to UK mode, and my WiFi password is forgotten. I made a couple searches here and couldn't find anything helpful for these concerns.

You are talking about "Raspbian for PC" ?

Where did you save the files ?
Do you shut down the PC correctly when finished ?

Did you actually set up persistence on your drive - it can't save files if it has nowhere to save them to. ;)
