Question Fedora on Live USB


Hey, if I am running Fedora on Live USB with persistance, does anyone know if I decide to install it to my hard drive will the files in my persistence be install also?

I would not expect them to be copied but I've never tried so I don't really know. What type of files and where are they on your system?

Thanks for replying. Actually, I found out the hard way. First of all, again Fedora didn't fail to cause another headache for me as even though I specified 4 GB persitance and even saw the persistance existed, after running all updates to my live Fedora, it ran out of space anyway, not even using my persistance! Brilliant, Fedora! So at that point it didn't matter about keeping any persitence and having it install to the hard drive. But these would have been the updates, Firefox and a couple of wallpapers I downloaded. So indeed I just installed to the hard drive and voilla, nothing was saved! Fedora loves to cause headaches! Thanks for replying though.
