SaveFile


Introduction
SaveFiles (also known as PupSave files) contains additions and changes to a 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).
For more information about the layered file system see How Puppy works.

Boot Up
Puppy's behavior on boot up depends whether any 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 Save file multi-session for more information.
