Ubuntu on USB flash drive

When you boot into Ubuntu from a WUBI install, you can see the Linux partition on your USB flash drive straight away. However, the reverse case is not true- if you boot into Ubuntu from your USB drive then your Ubuntu folders are invisible inside the “root.disk” file on your Windows partition.

So How do you mount a WUBI root.disk in a USB booted Ubuntu?

Well, it’s quite easy! Go into the terminal and type:

Code:

sudo mkdir /vdisk

sudo mount -o loop -t ext4 /media/Data/ubuntu/disks/root.disk /vdisk
