I have been trying out Mint Debian for the last few days and would like to make it my main HD & portable OS. I always install my LiveOSes in non-persistent mode. I would need to know how I could configure Mint in order to have it store user data on another mass storage device (i carry on my keychain an OS stick & a dedicated data stick), so that I can have a simple & automated access to mainly bookmarks, downloads, bitcoin wallet, pgp keys & wifi profiles/keys on each boot. What would the most elegant way to go about implementing that, keeping in mind I would need that folder's content to be accessible under windows and other Linux distros?
Would it be possible to use the unique device ID of the data stick as a sort of beacon for the OS stick to look for & connect to, bypassing host system's drive setup (sda/sdb/sdc etc) ?
Thank you so much for your precious help.
EDIT : forgot to mention I'm using the 32 bits "Linux Mint "Debian" - 201303 MATE 32-bit RC"
