How Do I Upgrade From 32GB To 64GB SD Card?

Recommended Posts


I am running Ubuntu (see below) and want to upgrade my micro SD card from a 32GB to a 64GB 

How can I clone my 32GB card over to the 64GB card? I want to upgrade to the newer OS after the clone.

Thanks in advance.

Generally, you can use tool such as balenaEtcher to clone the SD card from a 32 GB one to a 64 GB one. Then, you need to resize the rootfs partition to fill the rest of the 32G space.
