The "save changes" feature has been improved and enabled by default in this new version of Bluewhite64 Linux 12.1 Flash. It is done using "bw64save.dat" file which is a compressed image of empty loop XFS file system. Depending of the Pen Drive size, you will have different space size for saving your changes: for 2GB there is 375MB, for the 4GB is 2375MB and for the 8GB is 6395MB space available.
