    Hi,
    i want to Copy my 2.6 Image from a 32GB SDcard to another 32GB SDcard.
    Unfortunately both cards dont have the same Size of Bits.

    So is there an “easy” way to copy an Image to a smaller SDcard?

    I am having the same trouble….. I am trying to clone my SD card just in case and I can’t get the image to copy to a SD Micro card that is the exact same size as the one the image came off of….. it is just 52 blocks shy of fitting.

    Anyone have a simper solution that I can just bump up the size of a card a tiny tiny bit or shrink the image just a tiny bit?
