Never tried this. The only thing you could do is inserting the CF card in a card reader. Than copy all files into a folder. Insert the empty card and copy the files back.

Just try it.


Regards,

We make sure!

If you have Linux, you can do this. Remember the CF must not be mounted or else you'll screw up.

Clone the whole CF to an image. Assuming the CF reader is /dev/sdc:

Code: Select all

dd if=/dev/sdc of=my_cf_backup.img bs=1024


And clone the image back to the new CF:

Code: Select all

dd if=my_cf_backup.img of=/dev/sdc bs=1024

This clones the MBR and everything, thus you'll be using 256MB of your 1GB CF.
Then, reclaim the rest of the space making more partitions or growing the existing ones. You can use gparted/qparted/parted, present on many Linux Live CDs.
