I got unexpected results when I used Win32DiskImager to create an image of a uSD card I had just prepared.
It seems that no two 8GB uSD cards have EXACTLY the same number of bytes, do if you make a back up image of a
uSD card that is just slightly bigger than another 8GB card (even from the same manufacturer) then you can’t copy it to the smaller card.
To get around this problem, I used fdisk to create an installation that was about 6GB in size.
When fdisk asked for the last sector I gave it a size of “+6000GB” instead of accepting the default.
I thought that by doing this I would end up with a ~6GB image from Win32DiskImager.
Instead, I got an 8GB image. (The approximate size of the uSD card I used.)
Am I doing something wrong here, or should I try and using Linux “DD” instead ??
I have never used “DD” before.
