You can save to whatever you have (A)mounted and (B) permissions to write to, no matter what you boot from.

USB FLASH DRIVES that come with preinstalled Linux, the Linux apps,data and actual OS are all secure or I may accidentally delete anything ?
may install additional Apps alone to usb flash drive for running an other time(boot from usb flash drive) ?
When you say "(A)mounted" you mean only files of this OS(Linux) installed in this drive, and also this drive specially configured ?
USB Flash memory drives (no preinstalled) , how can configured to accept Linux Data ?
