I would like to ditch my current operating system, the shameful debacle that is Windows 10, so I’m exploring alternative operating systems (I imagine this situation isn’t uncommon). I have “installed” Ubuntu on a USB 3.0 flash memory stick and run it as a trial. So far, I’m impressed. Despite a steep learning curve, things are gradually falling into place – except a couple of areas on which I would greatly appreciate advice.
Firstly, changes to Ubuntu settings and Firefox “extensions” I made/added yesterday were gone when I logged in today. Is this because I’m using Ubuntu as a trial? I trust this wouldn’t happen if I “installed” Ubuntu on my HDD as my only operating system?
Secondly, I can’t seem to access my personal files that I know are on the PC’s HDD. Again, is this just because it’s a trial? I expect I could duplicate a few of these files onto the Ubuntu USB memory stick as a temporary measure just to get a feel for how Ubuntu handles files. Would that work out OK?
Thanks in anticipation.
