The Raspberry Pi is a great little machine for all kinds of experiments, but since it’s often pushed to its limits, it’s nice to have backups around. Blogger Matthew Hoskins shows how to backup, restore, customise and clone your Raspberry Pi SD cards right on the Pi itself.
Hoskins’ guide walks you through all the steps it takes to clone a card and create backups. To make things even easier, he’s included a script that does most of the work for you. Considering how easy it is to mess up a Raspberry Pi SD card, it’s nice to have a few backups around after you’ve customised and worked on a particular setup for a while. Head over to Hoskins’ site for the full guide.
