Set USB Disk default data directory during install

Post by previtech »

Hi to all,
is there a method to format the usb disk (ext4) and set it like the default data directory before software install in automatic mode?
Thank you!

Hi,

Not currently. We did plan for this in the past, but we decided against it to prevent users accidentally overwriting a USB HDD with existing data.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

Hi and thank you very much for your reply.

Isn't possible to add manually this function in dietpi.config or in a custum script?

Thank you
