    Sorry for my jumping into this old thread, too. But I've the same ideas. In times when a 128 GB micro sd costs less than 50 Euros it can really be an interesting option, especially for mobile PCP devices, to have your lala with you, without bothering with USB hard drives, sticks, hubs etc. I imagine that also power consumption would be lower.
    I've tried using the home directoy for storing mp3 files - no good solution, also because the backup takes ages even with only 30 songs.
    There have been two alternative suggestions in this thread: put the files into /mnt/mmcblk0p2 - creating folders and copying files does not work with WinSCP. I imagine that this is due to permission issues. Of course, I can create a lala folder there with putty, but then coping thousands of subfolders and files would be a hard job. Can I safely change permissions of /mnt/mmcblk0p2 in order to be able to copy files? Or should I create a root access?
    The second proposal was to create a third partition on the SD card, mount it manually etc. Would this be safer than the first solution?
    Thanks for your help &
    best regards

    Create the third partition would be the safest. The next version of pCP will allow you to select that partition if present.

    We are close to releasing, we are just working through some kernel issues with the 4.14.y tree.

    You can create a 3rd partition with Windows if you want. Then just set it up on the LMS page. (The drive will show up in the USB mounts area)

    Or I can walk you through doing it from ssh sessions if you want.

    Just thinking out loud here! Could be wrong, usually am.

    If you are going to add a third partition make sure your second partition is adequate for your future needs.

    Plan for a backup strategy.

    Think about how you do a full pCP upgrade of the SD card if an instu update fails.

    I feel commands like [Resize FS] would clobber the third partition. I am not use if we have included safeguards for user modified partition schemes.

    I think adding a separate media (via USB) could be simpler/safer solution.

    Yes the internal resizing routine probably does not check......(we should probably add that Greg >2 partitions = abort)

    Why not a USB flash drive?

    Seems like this would do the job and keep it separate from your "system" on the microSD card.

    @DJanGo,

    I am finding as I get older "my" opinion seems to be further out of step with others.

    regards
