New! SD Clone Toolbar
New in SD Clone 3 is a utility toolbar for common tasks like ejecting SD Cards, shrinking the file system, expanding the file system, and verifying SD cards. The toolbar also provides access to Raspberry Pi images hosted around the web that may be of interest to SD Clone users in Image Central.
Sources and Destinations
SD Clone’s main window contains two areas: the Sources column on the left and the Destinations window in the top center. Sources and destinations can be SD cards, disk images, compressed disk images, or USB flash drives. When a source is selected, all valid Destinations will be displayed.
For example, if a single connected SD card is selected as the source, SD Clone will present “Save Image” as the available destination. Hit the button in the lower right corner to save the image.
Likewise, if an image file, in compressed .zip or .dmg format, is selected as the source, SD clone will present the attached SD card as the available destination. Hit the button in the lower right corner to restore the image to the SD card.
