Newbie how to specify destination ????

Post by live » Tue Dec 08, 2009 3:26 pm

I use PartedMagic 4.6 which comes with Partimage 0.6.8beta1

I want to make an image of a FAT32 USB device (sdb5) onto an USB HDD sde2 in folder "GPS"

What I have tried:
For partition to save/restore, I select "sdb5"

Image file to create/use, I select "root/media/sde2/GPS" through the <*> menu.

I select F5,then another time F5 and I get a message "the 3rd argument [root/media/sde2/GPS] must be a valid regular file (not a directory, a...)

What I have tried:
For partition to save/restore, I select "sdb5" -- this part is correct

Image file to create/use, I select "root/media/sde2/GPS" through the <*> menu. -- you have an error here
You need to give the target image file a name! For example "/media/sde2/GPS/my-image.gz" If you compress, be sure to add the ".gz" to your filename. It should work then.
