I did get the persistence file option to work once, but it was a pain, because I had to modify the boot parameter to add --persistent every time I booted the USB, or Mint would boot into a virgin state again and ignore the persistence file. As JerryF suggested, it seems doing a full install to the USB is the most reliable solution at present.
All recommend a Full Install to the USB Flash Drive..
Can you please tell me what is the simplest way to do a Full Install of linux Mint to a USB Flash Drive?
(assume that the user has 2 USB Flash Drives, or a DVD Drive and a USB Flash Drive - both options are available)
