You need to set a root password on start up to do this.

The issue I had was that my tails persistent volume didn't mount properly under /home/amnesia. I was sure it still existed because I was prompted to decrypt it by the tails greeter. If you have the same problem as me, your data will still be located under /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked/.

There will be a file there called something like: persistence.conf.insecure_disabled

I first deleted this file.

This is probably a permissions issue. I fixed it by running

chown root:root /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked

My persistence.conf was empty but my persistence.conf.bak wasn't, so I ran

cat persistence.conf.bak >> persistence.conf

Your actual permissions might be wrong inside of the /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked Make sure that the persistence.conf has the ownership


good luck
