Tip of the Week: Create a Full Backup Image of an SD Card for a Raspberry Pi
- There are many ways to accomplish a full SD card backup image but we’re going to show you one of the easiest:
- First take the SD card out of your Pi
- Before you insert your SD card into your PC run the command:
- or you can use sudo fdisk -l
- This command will list out all your current drives.
- Next insert the SD card from the Pi and run the ‘df’ command once more.
- Now you’ll be able to see the drive path assigned to the SD card ex: /dev/mmcblk01 and 02.
- TIP: if you don’t see any changes interact with the drive in your file manager and then run the command again in the terminal
- Finally, run this command:
- sudo dd bs=4M if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=MyPi.img
- replacing the /dev/mmcblk0 with the path your PC assigned your SD card.
- Note we didn’t designate the 1 or 2 on the end we just wrote the path up to the mmcblk0.
- That’s it. Now you’ve made a complete backup image of your SD card that you can restore to another SD card in case of corruption or loss.
