Copying an image to flash to a larger SD card

Hi guys, I’m sure I’ve done this in the past, but can’t quite remember.
I’d like to be able to make a copy of a flashed SD card and put it onto a larger SD card. I’ve got Javelinface’s DEOT+v0.5 with a number of modifications on a 16Gb card, but I just got a 128Gb card that I’d like to fill with games. Any help would be spectacular. Thanks.

If you’re on Windows I’d recommend Win32 Disk Imager. You can read the contents of an SD card into a new ISO file, then write that ISO file to a different SD card. Here’s an article.

If you’re on Mac or Linux, I’d recommend using the dd command. Look up how to use it first. It can be dangerous!

+1 to the post above! You’ll just need to fill up the rest of the space; otherwise you’ll only have a 16GB partition.

Good news! I have included scripts to auto expand your OS to fill the space of a larger card - FOR THIS EXACT REASON! :slight_smile:

Have a look in the utilities folder for a surprise!
