    I used the BTSR2-Gnome-64.iso (Backtrack 5 R2 64Bit Gnome ISO) on a 16GB Flash Voyager USB stick. It works fine in none persitent mode, but with persitence exact same issues, very slow, IO errors, etc. I also tried changing the Persitent partion size from 4GB to 1.5GB's in hopes that it would have a different effect, same problems. I may try doing this on a USB external Hard Drive, to see if that fixes the problem, but I doubt it.

    Regards,

    There is a post in the BT5 How To's that utilizes VMware to trick the Install BackTrack program to install on to a USB drive as a standard install. I am trying this trick now. It seems to be working but taking a very long time to install. In any event, you may find the post here: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=47479

    Update: This trick worked, I have BT5R2 64Bit installed and working on the USB stick with persitence but it is still running slow, though there are no more errors.

    I wasn't meaning to imply that 2500M wasn't enough. Just that doing a "df -h" before the rsync would just provide you a means by which to see that the space was indeed empty. Which would be important if you'd been through the process numerous times.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
