Different size of image of the SD card

Post by rodiboki »

Hi,

many SD cards are not exactly the same size, although this same memory size should have. The USB Image Tool is often used when creating the SD card for Raspberry PI. It happens, that's the image larger than another SD card. It would be good if you could specify the number of bytes to be copied, or start and end point etc. in the USB Image Tool. This assumes that the partitions were made ​​something smaller.

Best regards,

You can already force this by activating the truncate option. This however requires the partition in the image to be resized before or fitting to reduced size beforehand.
