Edited on 2014-10-31 12:38:22 by darkcity [intro]
Additions:
~**""SaveFiles/ SaveFolder""** (also known as ""PupSave"" file/folder) are required for a [[InstallationFrugal Frugal Installation]] to save modifications to the operating system. The changes are either written written to RAM memory first then to file or folder, or written directly to file or folder. This method of running is sometimes referenced to as 'Live' in other distributions, where the option to make changes may or may not exist.
~The changes are anything affecting, adding to or removing from the linux file structure ([[RootFS]]) are stored there. This typically includes settings and install new applications.
==Save to RAM==
~Changes written to RAM can be stored to the file or folder on request or periodically - otherwise they will be lost on shutdown or reboot.
Deletions:
~**""SaveFiles/ SaveFolder""** (also known as ""PupSave"" file/folder) contains additions and changes to a [[InstallationFrugal Frugal Installation]] of Puppy. Changes to linux file structure ([[RootFS]]) are stored there.

Revision [30418]

Edited on 2014-10-29 14:05:19 by darkcity [save folder]
Additions:
~In 2014 a new method of storing changes to the ""RootFS"" was created. Instead of using a file of a fixed size a directory is used, thus it is a savefolder rather than savefile. This does away with having to resize the file or wasting disk space if less space is needed than predicted.

Edited on 2014-10-29 14:04:18 by darkcity [save folder]
Additions:
====""SaveFile"" or ""SaveFolder""====
~**""SaveFiles/ SaveFolder""** (also known as ""PupSave"" file/folder) contains additions and changes to a [[InstallationFrugal Frugal Installation]] of Puppy. Changes to linux file structure ([[RootFS]]) are stored there.
**Savefile**
~If using the savefile option it is created on the first run when rebooting/shuting down. The user specifies the size, name, filesystem type and location of the file. The savefile's size can be increased if necessary.
**Savefolder**
In 2014 a new method of storing changes to the ""RootFS"" was created. Instead of using a file of a fixed size a directory is used, thus it is a savefolder rather than savefile. This does away with having to resize the file or wasting disk space if less space is needed than predicted.
==Saving outside the Savefile/folder==
~To save documents outside of ""Savefile/folder"" go to ##/mnt/##. For example, ##/mnt/home## is the root directory/folder of your primary drive (C: drive in Windows speak).
~Saving documents outside of ""Savefile/folder"" makes them easy to access by other OSes and other Puppy iterations.
==Layered Filesystem==
~Puppylinux when frugally installed uses a layered file system, for more information see [[http://puppylinux.com/development/howpuppyworks.html How Puppy works]].
~Puppy's behavior on boot up depends whether any Savefiles/folders are found:
~[[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=93559 A savefolder option for Puppy (thread)]]

Deletions:
====""SaveFile""====
~**""SaveFiles""** (also known as ""PupSave"" files) contains additions and changes to a [[InstallationFrugal Frugal Installation]] of Puppy. Anything that is stored in the linux file system ([[RootFS]]).
~To save documents outside of ""Pup SaveFile"" go to ##/mnt/##. For example, ##/mnt/home## is the root directory/folder of your primary drive (C: drive in Windows speak).

~Puppy's behavior on boot up depends whether any [[SaveFile savefiles]] are found:
~~If none are found Puppy will load the [[BaseSFS]] without any modifications. In many versions this will prompt the user to configure Puppy and ask save is required on reboot/shutdown.
~~If only one save is found it will load automatically.
~~If more than one is found the user is prompted to select via a text menu.
~Note: the boot files on a multi-session disk work differently from those used for live disk and frugal installs. They look for and make save files differently, see [[SaveFileMultiSession Save file multi-session]] for more information.
