Oh, I'd expect it to reduce filesize to around 4G ... 106MB sounds too low, like the script failed !

As well as reducing filesize, it's useful to be able to clone a large card (e.g. 64GB) to a smaller one (16GB)

Quote:How to restore backup image to TinkerBoard, just as same as the burning up procedure? Do I some extra steps such as expand space or something like a kind of restore in size? 
Restore the .img as normal in win32diskimager,
then run
Code:
sudo tinker-config

when booted to expand to make full use of the card.

You can use win32 disk imager tool. Give a name for the image file, select the drive you inserted SD and click read.

The size of the image depends on the size of the sd card is not it?
