currently, I have a Raspberry Pi 2B with an older version of NCP on the SD card. The SD card got broken but I have a backup of the data on a USB stick (Backup of NCP and data files). I have another USB stick with the data files on it. Now, I want to buy a new Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB), a new SD card and two new USB sticks to increase storage space.
My current plan would look like this:
- Flash new SD card with the newest image of NCP
- Boot the new Pi with the new SD card
- Restore the backup of the ncp instance of the backup USB stick to the new SD card
- Copy the content from the data USB stick to the new data USB stick
- Copy the content of the backup USB stick to the new backup USB stick
- Update the NCP instance to the newest version
I don’t know yet how to perform steps 4 and 5 properly. I would firstly format the new USB sticks to BTRFS format (the format of the old sticks). Then I could simply copy the content of the old stick to the new stick with the cp-command, I guess.
Is this the way to go? What procedure would you recommend?
