That's much too small for any backup with substance.
What do you get from
xorriso -indev usb_part1.iso -find / -exec lsdl --
Is the USB stick content visible underneath
at all ?
If the mount point was really a link, one would have to enable link
following at least for files which are given as program arguments:
-follow default:param \
-outdev usb_part1.iso \
-map /mnt/usb-Kingston_DataTraveler_3.0_08606E69C773BFC06965007B-0:0-part1 /
But with default -follow settings you would have gotten an error message:
xorriso : FAILURE : Source '/mnt/usb-...' is not a directory. Target '' would be.
So i assume that the USB stick content was simply not available under
the /mnt/usb-... directory.
Have a nice day :)
