    Default kali live usb repair?

    kali live usb/win7

    MY pc was booted from the live usb (persistence), while in the suspended state it was removed. I guess it was corrupted as it will not boot from persistence now although it will boot from 'live' and 'fail safe' etc. Is there a way to repair persistence or will I have to format and start again?

    Based on the info you provided the fastest and easiest way would be to create a new bootable USB if you don't have any important files there.

    it will not corrup beacuse the live pc uses RAM to run OS from usb .... i think there is another problem , if you can explain more detailed i will help you .....

    It attempts to boot then hangs before the kali menu screen. Not sure a screen shot is possible. The last line of script when it hangs -"Failed to start Daily man-db regeneration"

    Went the format route but when I try to mount partition now I get - mount: /mnt/kali: can't read superblock on /dev/sdb1. Any ideas?
