How to create image of SD card?

Asked by Dubravko Tuckoric

On your page it is writen:
This program is designed to write a raw disk image to a removable device or backup a removable device to a raw image file."

Have a Rapsberry Pi NOOBS preinstaled card. I do not see how to backup this card to a raw image file ? I'm using 0.9.5 release

I'm not familiar with that specific card, but in general:
  insert the card and note the drive letter than windows assigns it
  run imagewriter, select the drive in the "device" box
  put a filename in the "image file" text area.
  Click "Read" - the device should be read and the image written to the filename that you specified.

What part are you having trouble with?

Yes - "Read" means "Read the Device", "Write" is "Write to the Device".

Glad that helped.....
