Image How To…
So which one should I choose to clone? The boot partition or the other partition?
Select the Boot one and Win32DiskImager will copy the whole card (I think it just needs the logical drive letter to find out where the physical drive/card really is).

Apparent a Noobs install is an issue. Maybe this
or maybe us gparted?
Or move folders to extra space and remount?
Well I tried moving var folder to new partition and edited fstab to say this
/dev/sda3 /usr ext4 defaults 0 0
But but I couldn't boot and ended up just starting from scratch and installed the non NOOBS version.
BUT, while getting out of the shower this morning I remembered that I forgot to make an empty new VAR folder for the new partition to be mounted into…Dang if it actually worked! it took a few reboots for the OS to adjust the file structure but on the third boot it all worked.
Still I went back to my new install, but it is good to know it works
This is what I used to mount the USB stick on the Raspberry Pi
Use this to figure out the UUID of the usb stick
then edit the fstab to mount it
sudo nano /etc/fstab
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 /dev/mmcblk0p6 /boot vfat defaults 0 2 /dev/mmcblk0p7 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1 # UUID=42981DB8981DAC03 /mnt/plexlib ntfs defaults 0 0 # The above stopped working, osm sort for file check problem caused it to stop booting # so I changed to this and the problem stopped /dev/sda1 /mnt/plexlib ntfs defaults 0 0
