Re: how to copy 1 external SD to another external SD?

PS, edit:

one probably has to 1st create an empty file like "Jessie.img", e.g. on D:\ or E:\
and then select it in Win32DiskImager.exe,
and then press "READ"
then overwrite...? - YES
strange... :?

Re: how to copy 1 external SD to another external SD?

the Win32DiskImager + BalenaEtcher method, I've done that more than 2 dozen times just plug the source disk (disregard if windoze doesnt read the linux partion, it doesnt, wont matter!) let Win32DiskImager "read" the source so it can save it to a file in a windows folder that you direct it to (just...

my Windows PC cant' see or copy Linux partitions.
LTolledo said above he/she uses "Win32DiskImager + BalenaEtcher". Have you tried these on the Win7 PC?
yes, now I downloaded BalenaEtcher. Win32DiskImager was already here.
I'll try it out by my Windows PC and report then, thank you!

Re: how to copy 1 external SD to another external SD?

for me, if I cant do the cloning on this RPi3B+, I'll try it on a RPi3B (both running Raspbian Stretch with full Desktop) if that still fails (very very rarely that it does), I do it on the win10pc, using the Win32DiskImager + BalenaEtcher combo...and get a backup on the win10pc HDD as a bonus!

Re: how to copy 1 external SD to another external SD?

Well then I suppose the GUI tool you’re using has an option to save an SD as an image on the file system. Plug your SD, save as file, unplug, plug the other one, restore from file to the SD. Do not confuse which is which before proceeding... AFAICS, when starting the Stretch GUI menu SD copy, there...

Re: how to copy 1 external SD to another external SD?

thanks for your efforts, but I honestly do not understand a single word of all those commands and - moreover - anything of the tons of output listings, it's really killing me. Finally it's obvious and evident if either SD was individually plugged: either SD is formatted and partitioned correctly - b...

Re: how to copy 1 external SD to another external SD?

yes, I have
2 different µSD cards
in 2 different µSD-to-SD adaptors
in 2 different USB card readers
in 2 different RPi USB ports. 8-)
And additionally of course 3rd, the Stretch boot µSD in the RPi µSD slot.

(JTM: I freshly formatted the empty SD by SD Formatter Tool on my Windows PC => FAT32, 29.8GB available, 1 partition, I labelled it "VOID") for either SD and either USB-SD-adapter (same brands) and either RPi USB slot : On...

Re: how to copy 1 external SD to another external SD?

please read closely:
the one which I arbitrarily plug fist does appear the other one then doesn't.
so if I 1st plug the empty SD, then the empty one appears and the Jessie card don't -
and if I 1st plug theJessie SD then the empty one doesn't afterwards any more.

how to copy 1 external SD to another external SD?

hello, I am using Stretch (GUI Desktop) and 2 USB-to-SD adaptors. I must backup 1 non-GUI-Jessie SD from 1 SD to another blank SD, both have 32 GB. (I actually wanted to use the Stretch GUI copy tool because it copies also slightly different storage sizes correctly) The non-GUI-Jessie has no SD copy...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

I know some users have really no interest in SD card speeds. However, anyone using this as a desktop to me would be interested in SD card speeds. Then I started doing some more digging and 50MB/sec seems very slow when you can get a 120GB SSD with an USB/SATA adapter for $30. I can see where size i...

Re: I bought a Raspberry Pi 3 model B. Where should I start and what are the best resources on the net ? Which is better

yes, I agree, and the Raspi Linux OS is a huge and steep obstacle for complete newcomers. I'd argue that is the same for any OS on any system for someone who hasn't used one before. I would argue that using Windows (for running the Arduino IDE which (both) work out of the box) is much easier than L...

Welcome to the Raspberry Pi forums. Arduino or RPi? Define better . Arduino is simpler (only one single task.) Arduino can provide tighter time-critical control (because it has no Operating System.) Arduino can support Analog devices directly via built in ADC connection pins. Arduino offers pretty ...
