    I want to backup a micro SD card for my Raspberry Pi. If I put the SD card into my computer (via USB card reader), will IfW back it up correctly? It seems the only program recommended on the web is Win32DiskImager, but that doesn't offer any compression.

    valnar,

    Sure. Easy. Make sure you do an Entire Drive backup and not a partition backup. When restoring the image, do an Entire Drive restore. This will restore the First Track.
