Kali linux live boot external storage device


I have live booted a hard disk of 500GB and set it to persistence, i want to access the documents on the host computer but i can only access Disk C: on the host and the data i want to access is in the other partitions.
How do i get to access those files? (the host computer is running on windows 10)

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: Currently OpenMandriva. Previously openSUSE, PCLinuxOS, CentOS, among others over the years.

"Persistence" is for things like USB sticks, when you want to run an operating system from a USB stick but want it to remember any changes made while running said OS.

The term "host" refers to a system that is running a "virtual machine". "Disk C:" is Windows/DOS drive letters that are not used in Linux and UNIX based systems.

You really need to read this and pick a far more suitable distribution, Kali Linux is not the right distribution for you.

along with the prior post, if you're going to use a Linux Distro on a external hdd for portability, you'd be best setting it up like a dual boot internal hdd, with a share partition that is FAT32 or NTFS so windows can read it.

thus elevating the need for Persistence and such.
