Hi Bruster999,

the script requires to have a basic raspbian image which consists of two partitions. If you use NOOBs you get this message. There is no noobs support right now. See

If you don't use NOOBs please post the result of 'sudo fdisk -l' and let me know which image you use instead of raspbian.

I was trying to use your great backup script but it gave me the error "RBK0013E: More than two partitions mmcblk0p found (Using NOOBS ?)". Any way around this. Your script looks great and would love to use it.
