Zorin 12.00 and flash drive 1TB


Hi
I have downloaded Zorin 12.00 OS and "burned" it to my flash drive.
My intention was to use a lot of the flash drive to store added programs and other things. For some reason the system tells me I only have 6GB in full and have very little space left.It is a large flash drive so how do I get it to recognise the other 994GB. Ii boots when I change the boot menu to boot from the flash drive and I have the usual options try or install. Is it possible for me to install it on the flash drive rather than my PC??

Any help you can give an old noobie would be much appreciated.

when you burn a ios to a usb stick no matter how big it is it will destroy it first, then create enough space to put the ios onto it, leaving the rest as raw so it is unusable. I have partitioned them before afterwards, but that is something more advanced, and just me playing around with it.

If you're planing on using this usb stick for an portable Linux OS you should look into puppy and alike that where created for use on the USB stick so you can store data as well as have a runable Linux OS.

A "live" usb is actually read-only. to run ZorinOS off this usb you will have to live boot via a different usb or a cd. And Install it to your usb.

Please Note: this is something that neither ZorinOS or a usb is designed to do. But it is possible.
