IGEL Linux offers users a data partition on the storage medium. A download/update function which loads data from a server and, where appropriate, updates them can be set up for this dedicated storage area.

The IGEL Support Team offers support for the creation and deployment of Custom Partitions. However, it is not possible to offer support for any third-party software that is installed on a Custom Partition.

If the thin client is reset to the default settings, the custom partition and all data stored on it will be deleted. With IGEL Linux Version 5.12.100, it is possible to securely wipe the partition. You can activate or deactivate the secure wipe under System > Registry > system > security > secure_wipe. By default, secure wipe is activated.
