Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core i3-4005U CPU @ 1.70GHz
Have a 64GB USB flash drive on which I installed the latest LinusMint (LM) version. So it is now like an install disk and LM runs well on my PC (win 7 64bit) to try LM. But I want to use the flash drive as a computer, so that I can save my files on it, install apps and take it with me to be used on any computer. But when I try to install Dropbox, it say there is no room, so the flash drive is not used fully. With properties I find that the system is only +- 100MB. What do I have to do to make the full USB available.

Dropbox is nothing like 64GB so something is wrong. Let us know the used space and free space on your USB flash drive.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

There are 3 types of install to a flash drive:
1) Normal. This is like a LiveCD. When you switch off all additions are lost
2) Persistent. This is like having a Home partition. You can save some stuff to it. Different configurations will Not be saved.
3) A Full-install. As it says, you do a full install of the program. Everything is saved (Assuming there is space)

Which have you got?
