Nimblex.dat is for saving to a file & since you are saving to a partition , it is not required. I also saved to a partition like you as I like to see & edit what is saved.
I would like to give you a tip here.
If you check your /changes in hda3 ) based "changes=/dev/hda3 ") , especially, the /changes/temp subdirectory you will see a lot of .wh.files
with a size of zero (if you can't see them turn on your file manager option to view hidden file. The "." (dot) means they are hidden).
They are called "white out files
" which is left behind due to issue in mounting & unmounting of files and if not deleted periodically may soon reach 10 of thounsands ! The 1st time I realised this problem after reading about it on Slax's forum , I already have 100,000 + .wh files!!!
To prevent them [/b
Add the following lines to [b]/etc/rc.d/rc.local
echo "Removing .wh files";
find /mnt/live/memory/changes -name .wh* -type f -print0 | xargs -0 /bin/rm -f;
In case the above doesn't do the trick you can manually delete them:
(a) The hard way , one by one.
(b) Use this scripts.
#delete .wh in /hda3
/changes - NimbleX
changes -name .wh* -type f -print0 | xargs -0 /bin/rm -f;
to you actual partition number.
Cut & paste the script into a text file & save.
To use :
(a) Open the text file , copy & paste the script int a terminal, press enter . "Poof" it deletes the suckers (.wh).
(b) OK this so far doesn't always work for me . I haven't figured out why.
Make the text into an executable script
open a terminal & navigate to where the text file is.
chhmod +x textfilename.extension
chmod = change mode
+ = turn on
x = executable
You can also use a file manager, Right clik the text file , select properties , go to the permission tab. Check the box next to "is executable"
Rename the textfile to filename.sh . The sh extension means that it is a script . Once you rename it ".sh " the icomn will change to a "terminal " icon.
To use a script:
(a) Click it,
(b) Open terminal , navigate to where the script is & type
sh filename.sh & press enter.
However , as I mention this (clicking & sh filename don't a;lways work), but what always work is to "copy & paste " the script into a terminal.
