I'm using tails to run monero and have a external SSD which the blockchain is already downloaded on. when attempting to lead monero to the block chain it says my SSD only has 3 gb of space on it. its already mounted to tails and has over 800 gb free. what am i doin wrong.
Boot tails -> Utilities Disks -> Look if your SSD is there and the size. On the right part of the window do you see Partition 2 - TailsData Select it and look at Contents: Mounted at /Home/amnesia/Persistent (around 592 GB).
I Have MoneroBlockhain, monero, monero-gui and monero-gnu directly under: Home/Persistent
Took me some time to get it all right, but is a safe and secure way. Good Luck.
