    So I reinstall, create a backup; winscp to the backup and save to my windows pc.

    I read the advice on using the backup To save an img file. This will be smaller than 4gb sd card?

    Thanks maninavan and ronnie for your support.

    In my example, I burnt pCP to a 4GB sd card

    Eaxpanded the FS to 1MB

    Installed 4 extensions and a copy of LMS (I did not configure LMS)

    I made the backup and copied to my windows Desktop

    One can see the sizes in the following screenshot (I have extracted the .img to show its size)

    pCP failed to expand

    I want to run pCP on my 4GB sd card as Player/Server but the expand (I mean resize) failed three times. I attach the dmesg

    I'm not very good with log files, sorry

    I would suggest using the SD Card formatter and wiping the card, it will only take five minutes or so

    I must admit I have never seen resize fail.

    Have a look at the resize log, [Main Page] > [Diagnostics] > [Logs] > "resize"

    There are two logs with mention of resize.

    Current bootsync

    #!/bin/sh
    # put other system startup commands here, the boot process will wait until they complete.
    # Use bootlocal.sh for system startup commands that can run in the background
    # and therefore not slow down the boot process.

    # This file will be updated during updates, so do not place additional commands here.

    I thought about my use of the rpi4 and decided not to install LMS.
    We have two LMS instances on our lan; four players and additional rpi4.
    I use the rpi4 (with HAT) as a headphone amplifier in the home office where the power is switched off every night.
    If I don't turn it off in the Material skin browser before it's switched off, the piCore os should still reboot.
