Quick Question! Regarding setting up!

Hello again…Is there some voodoo magic I could do with setting up Patchbox OS on a Windows Virtual machine via VirtualBox and then flash/copy that directly to a SSD then boot it all on a Pi? this would be great while doing config and installs and for backup purposes. Also good for testing and researching ;)…all the fun stuff! cheers heaps! Jeramiah

Looks like it’s possible to clone the sd card into an USB SSD disk: https://www.tomshardware.com/how-to/boot-raspberry-pi-4-usb. The file system contents won’t be easily accessible on Windows, as it requires special software to read Linux file systems. I used DiskInternals Linux Reader successfully, but it only reads the files. :slight_smile:

An interim solution for speeding things up would be to use a fast SD card, the speed does make a big difference. :slight_smile:

Great thanks! will get into it…yeah it would be good for patches, pure data and supercollider external setups and libs and so forth…just doing that once and then making a backup or clone of it…

cheers Giedrius! have a good one.
