    Hello everyone,

    So after quite some time I’ve been working on and off with my retropie I feel like I finally have everything configured just the way I like it, the only problem is… My SD card is full!

    Is there a simple way to transfer the exact same setup I have on my original SD card to a larger SD card, without having to reconfigure everything? (i.e. as pain free as possible)

    Thanks again!



    Probably no since you have to write on it. The only way I know of is you must write on the card.



    yes! Just use win32diskimager to read the image to a .img file and then write it to the larger sd card.

    Careful using it. Read – reads the sd, Write – writes to sd. Don’t mix it up 🙂



    as above, then I use Paragon Partition Manager (free trial but resizing still works after trial) to resize the ext4 partition.

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.



    You can just use the raspi-config to extend the filesystem to its full size.
