Long story short my Pi3 crashed, but I have a full backup of it that I copied off to my windows machine (including all the hidden files. I did just a manual copy of the whole folder structure. I didnt realise LibreELEC had a backup feature) however, when I load up Ext2FSD to copy my backup back onto the Pi3 SD card, ext2fsd doesn't recognize the 15.5GB linux partition for me to access. it says it is RAW. if I try and mount it anyway, Ext2fsd crashes. It does let me mount the 500mb FAT32 partition however, but I take it this isn't enough to restore everything.
do I have to tell the software which filetype it is? Or is there another piece of software that will let me copy my backup back onto the SD card from windows?
thanks for your help
