I have two reasons for wanting to clone the external USB flash drive I use with my Firestick 4k.
I have set it up so that nearly all the apps that I want to use on it, apart from downloader, troypoint, remote adb shell and my vpn. I have not transferred the Amazon bloatware!
What I would like to do is to clone the flash drive in its entirety, not just the user area for storing films etc but the bit that has the apps on it. If I could do this then:
- I would have a back up (I am old school. Never did anything on IT without a backup but that seems to have gone out of the window with Firesticks).
- if I got a new Firestick I could install a few things like downloader, troypoint etc and attach the Firestick. Then everything I had previously done would be available without a whole lot of unnecessary work.
None of the ways I have tried to copy the flash drive work - the partition containing the apps is invisible to the tools I have tried. Are there any which will simple take an image of the flash drive and dump it on another? It may not help that I am a Mac user for which there may be fewer tools than for Windows
