Re: piclone needs "blank" sd card.

The only thing I can think of is that Piclone doesn't automatically populate the source and destination lists. You have to click the little down arrow for each, then pick something. Especially in cases where there's only one choice for each they should populate on opening the program instead of sitting there empty.

Greetings all;

All i/o options in piclone are ghosted.  The help says it wants a blank
sd card.  How it this accomplished if piclone has attempted to use it
previously and it contains week old non-precious data?  Is it sufficient
to wipe out the GPT partition table with dd using 20k worth
of /dev/zero? I'm concerned that might wipe out the card totally.

I have no reason to believe that dd can damage a card.
