Can't see the root partition
Windows PCs can’t see the Linux partition on the SD card (or USB device).
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.
