Posted on the pic lone git hub ahead and got a rather short response..
So what do you expect PiClone to do?
All I could reply to that is that I'd expect it to do what it says it is supposed to do , clone a Card and be able to do it to a different sized disk as per th ehe file. Would expect it to handle all partition issues etc.
So SD Copier is a dead end and can be said as 'does not work properly'
So I have tried dc3dd of the 64 gb image to an external HDD, and then pishrink it , then burn to an SD card via Etcher.
It copies. burns but when examined in a GPARTED from another boot,. when the card is not the running card..still shows the error and will not mount
So tried to do what I did not want to do..I used GPARTED on the 64gb card, shrunk it to a smaller partition, and did the same again.
copied with dc3dd and the pishrink
again when written to an SD card .. the SD card boots, but when looked at in GPARTED from another OS, it still shows errors and will not boot.
It just seems the whole clone making process is flawed in some way >>>or is there another explanation ..have been trying to create a clone for many days now.
Any clone, either created via dc3dd/pishrink/Etcher or direct clone with SD Copier... examining the resultant SD card in GPARTED always results int eh cloned card showing the orange triangle and exclamantaion mark
