Hi guys I have already read couple of articles about cloning a SD Card of a raspberry pi. I am using a Raspberry Pi 3 B with Raspian.
I took out the SD card from the Pi connected it to my Windows PC. There I saw 3 new drives. 2 of them unreadable. One of them readable and called "RECOVERY". I cloned the E drive to a new image. And right now I have 2 questions:
- Did I successfully clone my pi? What happened to those unreadable partitions? I am going to buy two new raspberry Pi's and I want to make sure when I use this image I can easily use the setup I created in my first Pi.
- I am using a 16GB SD card and I only installed one app. Other than that it is all stock Raspian. But my image file is close to 15GB. I am pretty sure my SD card isn't that full. How can I fix this? I wanna be able to upload this image file to cloud and easily access it from everywhere but 15GBs is just way too big
Open to recommendations. Thanks in advance!
