Subject description: I made it a bit too small...
 

Hello!

This is my first post on these forums. I'm here because I don't know how I can resize the personal storage file that is made after the first shutdown. I was originally using a small USB stick which I used for other things, so I didn't want to use all the space on it, so I picked 64 MB. After installing Firefox (largly because I prefer it over the other browsers), it is pretty low on space. I got a bigger USB stick (8 GB), but now I don't know how to make the max storage size larger.

Honestly, I have this weird feeling it's right under my nose. I usually end up doing that for things like this. Confused

Cheers!

Expanding SaveFile
There is a tool for expand the SaveFile under - PuppyMenu > Utility > Resize personal Storage file
Or go to - PupControl > Drive > Resize Puppy File
Choose how much to expand the file, however it will only be activated on next startup. Ensure you restart with the file that needs to be expanded. This tool only allows you to expand the file, not decrease it.
