    Hi all,

    How can i take my fully configured system from the MicroSD card and make an ISO / IMG file of it as a backup in case I corrupt it? Google searches do not understand my question and keep taking me to “How to burn an IMG to the disk”.

    I use Win32DiskImager for that, I need to know how to go the other way.. from SD card, to the image file? Anyone here know how?

    Win32DiskImager can do that too. There are two buttons at the bottom, one says read, the other says write. 😉

    If you need to shrink the image so it writes back to the same size card this may help
