    Trouble Adding Persistence

    Hello everyone,

    I'm brand new to using Kali Linux and have just recently installed it on a 64GB USB 3.0 drive. I'm able to boot into it just fine, but like many users would like to be able to save my configurations. I've hit an issue when following the steps for this listed on https://www.kali.org/docs/usb/usb-persistence/. On Step 4.) I am able to create a mount point and mount the new partition there. My issue comes when I input the following line:

    kali@kali:~$ echo "/ union" | sudo tee /mnt/my_usb/persistence.conf


    the output from this command is:

    No such file or directory / union


    Being so new to this OS, I'm at quite a loss here. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    echo is 'writing' "/ union" to the console and then the tee is to Also write it to /mnt/my_usb/persistence.conf

    I wonder if you did 'boot it' with the persistence option before trying to set it up, if you didn't "/ union" will indeed not yet exist..
