I had a 500 GB SSD used as cache on my NAS but the estimated lifespan was going too down so I’ve replaced it.
Now I’m using the SSD in an USB enclosure attached to Raspberry Pi 4 to boot Astroberry, but due to low estimated lifespan (1%), (and because I don’t know where to store the Astroberry microSD without loosing it ) I’ve set the microSD as fallback.
Here how I’ve made it.
2) restore the backup on SSD
I selected the backup file and restored on SSD
3) [optional] additional partition for images
I prefer to keep the images on another partition, so I can easier restore the system on a smaller SD and set selective backup, so I’ve attached the only SSD to USB 3 port, booted and installed gparted on Astorberry.
I’ve se they astroberry as owner of the new mountpoint
