Easy method to export retropie image



  • I was hoping for an easy method to export your entire retropie image to a USB stick plugged into the pi via an option under the retropie menu. It should only copy the actual data, not the empty space (unlike how win32 disk imager does) and resize on boot to the SD size you copy to. I currently have a 128gb SD card with maybe 10 gb used so I'd like to copy that 10 gb image without all the extra space and put it on a 32 gb extra SD I have.

    Maybe the retropie menu could have an option to export your image to USB to simplify making backups?
