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
There will be a file there called something like:
I first deleted this file.
This is probably a permissions issue. I fixed it by running
chown root:root /live/persistence/TailsData_unlocked
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
