  • ImageUSB clone 128 GB microsd card to 256 GB microsd card

    When I am creating an image of a 128 gb card and writing it to a 256 gb card , the 256 gb card's partition table seems to be overwritten and windows and Android say it is 128gb . Is there a way to do the copy without changing the drive size ?

    This is the expected behavior and is documented:

    Warning: Due to the forensic nature of image duplication by ImageUSB, please ensure that you select UFDs with a storage size similar to the image you wish to duplicate. For example, if a 2GB image is copied to an 8GB USB Flash Drive, the drive will only be able to use two out of the eight gigabytes of storage space. In this scenario, users will need to reformat the UFD in order to access the rest of the storage space.
    If the image contains a single partition of NTFS type, you can try to use the extend partition option. However, I assume this is not the case as you mention "Android" in your post. If you just require a copy of the contents only, you do not need imageUSB but can just drag/drop copy/paste the files onto the other microsd card.
