The RaspberryPi OS with lxde desktop comes with an "SD Card Copier" application that allows live-cloning of the booted SD card.
It will obviously save everything on the card...

Cheers!

Looks like SD Card Copier not available on Lite Raspbian install as I did here.
Any chance the problem is in the WiFi settings? Do you need to enable ssh and add wpa_supplicant again? Or would that be in the disk image?

Everything should be in the disk image. At this point I'd suggest plugging a keyboard and monitor into the Pi and seeing what occurs when it boots up on the copied card. It could be a bad card or something.

Plymouth, MN - terrible tap water for brewing
Yes - Windows only, but there has to be a Linux or Mac equivalent.
I've used either SD card and have no differences or trouble on either one. Doesn't matter which one is installed to run Fermentrack.
It's not really a backup, but a clone of the SD card at the time when I do the "backup" - an exact copy.

Thanks I’ll try. I’m brewing this weekend so going to use it without a back up.

Thanks. In hearing everyone’s replies it seems like I may have a bad SD card because otherwise seems like I am doing the other steps correctly.
