Persistence - VentoyMic - 07-16-2020

Thank you for this great tool! Everything works fineĀ  - except peristence.
I've got persistence for these distribution
UBUNTU 20.04
KDE neon 20200702

Using the same setup-principles persistence fails (F5-test reports SUCCESS / OK for all) for
kUBUNTU 20.04
MANJARO 2003

My question: Is there any chance to find out in advance, if a distribution should work with persistence using ventoy?
Would it be possible, to add a column "Persistence" to the ISO-list, with label (e.g. "casper-rw" OR "MX-Persist") if working or "NO" if persistence not possible?

Here list the tested distros and iso files, for that not tested yet, the persistence may not take effect.
There is no prompt that can tell you that this iso file is not supported with persistence by ventoy.
Or you can assume that for those not tested distros are not supported yet.

I can confirm, Ubuntu / ubuntu-20.04-desktop-amd64.iso / casper-rw / tested on ThinkPad.

We (I did not find out, to do it myself) could add KDEneon / neon-user-20200702-1117.iso / casper-rw / tested on ThinkPad.
Nevertheless, for me it's strange, that UBUNTU works, neon works, but kUBUNTU doesn't. Do you know more detail?
