Every few weeks I mount a spare SD card in a reader and plug it into my PI and use VNC to the PI to make a duplicate of my system SD. II use the Raspbian SD card copier utility. t's slow as molasses taking upwards of 2 hours, and fails mysteriously once in a while.
I was excited to see MR 8 supported removable media. I in fact made a backup of my SD which took minutes and gives me a backup that I can store offsite more readily.
Anyone else do this? I've yet to test a restoration (just been lazy). And wondered if anyone has and if it works OK or if 'm just wasting my time doing this.
