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 ...

Security is an ongoing process of eternal vigilance. Of keeping your wits about you and being aware of impeding threats. Tru...

The risk of the user downloading something dodgy and installing it is ... up to the user. but exactly that is the point!

from my experiences with a 14" 6K notebook screen and a 13" full-HD touch screen for my Pi you'll probably will have no benefit from 4K displays smaller than that at all.

So you are not willing to spend 2 minutes changing passwords? Can you really be that concerned about security if you are not willing to spend any time on it? Being secure takes effort. It's less effort on Linux than Windows but still requires work. apart from what I'll do or not - because it's so c...
