Paul

i had several time that when i like to create the clean install the SD looks to be locked Unmount because of the installation already on the SD .I have no idea why this is

I load than the umbunto-mate via etcher, if the SD is new it has no problem but after than i am not able to burn save back the backup img file or a clean umbunto mate install with etcher, it looks like write protected.

Did you have that kind of issue also, how do you back up your images via windows.

please can you explean how you do backup and restore img from and to SD, on windows who do you create your backup
