Additions:
~When there is a single [[SaveFile pup savefile]] Puppy will automatically find and load it. To avoid this there are at least two methods, see below. This applies to [[frugal]] installations.
==Reasons to avoid loading Savefile==
~-To make a fresh pup save file when you shutdown/reboot.
~-To back up the savefile, which can be done by copying as long as it isn't in use (mounted).
~-To mount the savefile to check its contents.
~-To repair the savefile using [[e2fsck]]
==Method 1 - Make Puppy give you the choice of savefile ==
---
~For example,
~if original save-file is called ##lupusave-name.2fs##
~make a file blank dummy file, calling the new one something like - ##lupusave-dummy.2fs##
---
~Ensure that the naming convention is retained, for Puppy Lucid 5.2x - ##lupusave-<name>.<2/3>fs##
---
==Method 2 - Prevent Puppy loading any ""SaveFiles""==

~If you are using a bootloader such as [[Grub]], you can add another option, and configure it to use this parameter.
