oh, that's a different story. The persistence thing is only a small portion of memory set aside to store persistent data (oh, who would've thought that). Technically, it's a large file containing a file system of its own, which is being mounted at boot. The reason why you can't make it larger than 4GB is possibly that you formatted the entire USB pen drive to FAT32, which doesn't allow for files larger than 4GB (a technical limit). By the way, 4GB for persistent data (probably the /home directories) is an awful lot, I think.
And from your remark I take it that you didn't intend to make a regular, full install, but instead a live system that runs off a read-only partition or an ISO image. That's a very different thing. But even so, you could make, let's say, a 10GB partition and put the OS image plus the persistent storage on it, and then make then make one more partition taking the remaining 50GB. Once your live system is running, you can access this extra partition like any other, and can use it to store files.
But then again, you don't even need this persistence stuff if you can use the remaining space as an extra partition with full read and write access.
