I'd like to make a Live USB for Ubuntu. In an ideal world, I would:

  • Partition USB drive in two parts.
  • Install Ubuntu on one part.
  • Use other part for storage.

Is this possible?

Ubuntu allows you to make a Live USB without going through the regular installation procedure, allowing you to leave space for other files. Is there a specific reason you want to partition the drive? – oKtosiTe Nov 27 '10 at 23:39
I thought that I couldn't save any data to the USB, besides the OS. Are you telling me that I can create a normal Live USB and also save files to that USB drive? If so, please explain that in an Answer, and it'll probably be accepted. – stalepretzel Nov 28 '10 at 1:16

It can be done, but is not necessary. Ubuntu installs in an windows partition, and uses a file for persistant storage.

You can use the same partition for Windows files storage.
