raspiBackup can be used to restore a backup to it's original device configuration. there exist 3 configurations:

1) /boot and / on SD card

2) /boot on SD card and / external on a SSD, USB disk or USB flash drive (Raspi2 which doesn't support USB boot mode)

3) /boot and / on SSD, USB disk or USB flash drive (USB boot mode on Raspi3 or Raspi4)

raspiBackup can be used to migrate easily from (1) to (2) or (3).

 

 

Just create a backup with raspiBackup and restore this backup to the new device configuration:

For (2) use following command to restore the backup:

sudo raspiBackup.sh -d <SD card> -R <USB device> <backup>

For (2) use following command to restore the backup:

sudo raspiBackup.sh -d <USB device> <backup>

 

If a large USB device is used option --resizeRootFS- may be useful to disable automatic expansion of the root partition. Then you can use the additional space for additional partitions.
