All of them as far as I know. You just have to mount some sort of read/write media to the live DVD's file system; pendrive, external USB drive, etc, and save your data to somewhere on that media. A live DVD is obviously read only so, "nae luck" there.

Oh! And Welcome to LinuxQuestions.

check out this link, mount a drive as others suggested.

https://linuxconfig.org/howto-mount-usb-drive-in-linux

or if you have Google drive, Onedrive then upload your files.

Good luck!

Welcome to LQ!

I think the OP wants a dvd-rw disk or a dvd with a usb for persistence.

I have used a few but can't remember. Puppy may be one that can save persistence. Positive there is one that can use a dvd-rw but can't remember. Some of the distros started doing this with a floppy for persistence changes.

Jefro was on the right track.

Puppy, which is what I mainly use as my 'daily driver', is, AFAIK, the only Linux distro in existence capable of saving back to the very same optical disc that its 'Live' install runs from.....so long as you do not 'close' (or 'finalize') the disc when creating it.

This being the case, obviously a DVD will be preferable to a CD, due to it's much larger capacity.

The Puppy Forums @ murga-linux.com run a special sub-forum dedicated solely to those users that prefer to run Puppy in this manner....a surprising number, in fact.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/index.php?f=6

Even Knoppix can't do this.

Most of the 'buntu flavours will create persistence for you, if you run them from a 'LiveUSB'.....especially if you use UNetBootin to create the USB 'key'.


Mike.
