In what sense?

At least insofar as being able to access the encrypted storage
partition of a USB install of TAILS is concerned, so long as you don't
repartition the device it should just work.  I've tested this a few
times (upgrading a USB key from TAILS v0.19 to TAILS v0.20) and the
data's been accessible every time.

Were you referring to something else (namely, potentially needing to
repartition the device if the distro grows too large to be accomodated
by previous installs)?
