Ok, on this particular SD card non of the systems I tried it on in /dev showed anything mounted

as say sbd, sbc, or even sba in the case of the Pi where the disk running the active in use

SD card to be backed up from like /dev/mmcblk0p1. So that was my clue that the disk wasn't


Thanks for the information.

Hi Marty,
The SD cards are TYPICALLY formatted as xFAT from the factory.  Some may slip thru without initial formatting etc.  Yes, it warns you that all data will be deleted, but that is because it overwrites everything on the disc/card etc.  it doesn't do a format or erase before it starts
