The target SDcard is a 16 GB card whereas the live card is 32 GB but the used size is only 12 GB, so it should fit on a 16GB card.
I attached the target SD-card to my RPi4 using an USB memory reader and started "Accessories/SD Card Copier".
In the From Device box I selected EB1QT (/dev/mmcblk0) and in the target box I selected Mass Storage Device (/dev/sda), it was the only allowed item.
Now I thought that I was done and could use the Start button, but it is not enabled!
Is this because the target card contains a Pi image already? It is an old OSMC media center image I no longer use.
Since SD Card Copier purportedly does not need the same or larger size card only as large as will fit the actual data I thought I could re-use my old card.
But it seems like I am out of luck here.
Is there any way to erase the existing target SD card so SD Card Copier can use it???
THis is what I see in a terminal:
