Make your Data, Applications safe in Ubuntu Live Boot

Wouldn't it be fantastic if you could install your necessary applications in a Live Boot and use it wherever you get a computer. Well you can do it. This blog will somehow try to provide a way to store all your data and applications from Live Boot.
Generally running an operating system from an external device like USB is like using guest session. While running the system we have root privileges to download any application and install them. Also we can browse the Internet and download files, make files, folder, etc. But all the data will be erased and your system will be fresh for next time you boot it.

In order to store files, folders and installed applications in your live boot you need to:
  1. Create a user.
  2. Provide that user administrative privilege.
  3. Reboot
Creating a user in Ubuntu is an easy task. There is a GUI "User Accounts" in your dashboard.
 In Dash Menu type: Users. 
  • There you will see one application User Accounts.
  • Add a Account:

    Set the account type to administrator. Enter full name: "test".
    Then you will see the details about the new user.

    Now click the password : Account disabled section , set a password and reboot your system. This type even though you are running your system from live boot you will get a login panel with user name test, login. After login you can add folders and install some applications save them. And reboot the system again. Now you can see the changes all your data is safe. Now you have a portable operating system all the time which you can operate anywhere.
