Can't see the root partition
Windows will work with partitions formatted as
Win95 FAT32 (LBA), so it will see the
/dev/mmcblk0p1, but the Linux formatted
/dev/mmcblk0p2 is invisible. For all intents and purposes the SD card appears to be only 64.0M in size.
If access to the
root partition is required, there are 2 options:
- use a computer with Linux type OS.
- load additional software onto the Windows PC.
Depending on the software loaded on your Windows PC, you may be get a series of messages when you plug your SD card in. Always:
- Ignore formatting requests.
- Ignore anti-virus warnings.
- Ignore requests to do backups.
