A while ago I managed to corrupt my SD card that was holding my Windows IoT Core and all the apps running
I lost some of my work and had to redo a brand new installation on a new SD card !
So I went to look on how to prevent this from happening in the future.
Download the Win32 Imager from Sourceforge
Cloning the SD Card With Windows
1. Install the application
2. Make an image to your local machine
Wait for the imaging of the SD card to be completed. There is a progress bar that will give you an idea as to how long this will take.
Restoring an SD Card From a Clone
Clean you SD card first to regain all the capacity :
1. First format the DS Card
2. Next regain all the unallocated space using these steps :
Open cmd prompt with Admin priviliges and run these commands :
=> SELECT DISK 1 (if this is your SD Card !)
To zero out all data on the SD card you could use “clean all” instead
=> CREATE PRIMARY PARTITION
Check again using the Disk Manager you should now have all the capacity back
If this did not work best check the alternatives here :
Restore using Win32 Imager
Select the previously saved image and press WRITE
Watch the progress bar and check the result …
