    After updating to 2.3.3 I thought it might be a good idea to create an image of my SD card…
    So I defined my connected USB drive as target and clicked the „Create Image“ button.
    Since the USB drive is shared, I could watch how the image file started to grow, and grow, and grow, and grow…
    Till it was way bigger that the 16GB SD card… ehhhm, I think now is a good time to check the debug info:

    Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 38913 cylinders, total 625142448 sectors
    Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
    Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
    Disk identifier: 0xbd191bfe

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 2048 625139711 312568832 7 HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

    Cool I’m creating a backup of my backup drive on my backup drive 🙂
    And btw. where is the stop this action button?

    Since I cannot define my boot drive for imaging I assume I didn’t do anything wrong…
    Thanks for listening… I think I reboot my beloved Max2Play device now…
    Keep up the fantastic work! You guys are fabulous!!!
