Image SD card while Pi is running?

Thu Jun 21, 2012 11:19 am

Is it possible to create an image of the SD card while my raspberry pi / debian is running or in other words copy all files while Debian is running? E.g. the Acronis TrueImage products can do this on Windows, I am looking for something like this on the Raspberry Pi. Thanks for any hint!

You can easily do this with dd from the command line. There are GUI wrappers for it if you prefer.

dd - dd man page
air_imager - dd GUI wrapper

Return to “Debian”
