Backup, Restore, Customize and Clone your Raspberry Pi SD Cards @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

This tutorial from Matthew E Hoskins (aka sysMATT) shows you how to backup and clone your rasp pi sd cards:

Ladies and gentlemen, if you are like me, you probably have a few raspberry pi. (Piis?) I have found them to be great little Linux development boards supported by a huge community. Whenever I need a net connected microprocessor project, the pi is an easy win. I have used it in internet connected clocks, LED signs, RGB lighting projects and so many other crazy projects. They make a great internet gateway for Arduino projects. This use is the very definition of “embedded”, a raspberry pi with no keyboard, mouse or monitor. It boots, connects and does it’s programmed task. It would be a huge inconvenience to manually configure every one of these starting from a raspbian .img file. Even if your not into electronics, manipulating the SD cards directly will make your life a little easier.

Now would be a great time to introduce my “day job”. I am a professional *NIX system administrator and system architect. So when I see a raspberry pi I see a Linux box. UNIX/Linux systems are very easy to clone, it’s just a pile of files. I will start with some basic theory and how to work with the SD card from the command line. Then, I will introduce you to my scripts which automate the process.
