the answer to the question may be as simple as “just drag the files to your HD” - but I’m asking anyway.
I am wondering what the best way to back the Pi’s SD card is. I can, obviously, plug it into my Mac which sees it as a volume, and from there I could just drag the contents of that to a folder on my HD (which would then put it into the regular backup schedule). The reversal of this, to me, also seems possible - dragging the backup files onto an SD card to restore - or move it to a bigger SD card.
Are my assumptions correct? I am asking because when I set up the SD card for my Pi, I had to use some Terminal commands on my Mac to ensure the files were correctly written. Dragging & dropping files in Finder was, apparently, not the way to do it (the same applies to Windows as well).
So - backing up & restoring? Is this a mouse based operation, or some Terminal commands? If the latter, what would they be?
All the best,
