Edison drive has 767 MB after format..Yocto image to be copied is 0.98 GB

Jump to solution

Hi !

I wish to reflash my Edison to restore some files that I might have messed up.

But the problem is a little weird.

When I format the Edison drive to be able to copy new image files, system shows that Edison has 767MB of 767MB free space, while the image (http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/edison-iotdk-image-280915.zip Release 2.1 Yocto* complete image) downloaded from https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads Intel Website has a 0.98 GB size of files. (I have tried to format the Edison from a Ubuntu System, using the Linux terminal way; as well as through my own Windows 10 system, using the Windows cmd way)

Please help.

What could have caused Edison's disk space to reduce?

Some information :

I have the Edison breakout board.

I am using the Edison on a windows-10 64 bit system.

I had been previously able to reflash my Edison easily.

After reflashing, I had installed mariadb on Edison ( /message/330112 https://communities.intel.com/message/330112 )

Now, I want to reflash the Edison since it does not save the Wifi configuration between reboots.

Hello ravija,

There is a newer method to flash the Edison module. This new method uses a software called Flash Tool Lite. This software flashes the latest Yocto image for Edison. You can download it from the following site under the Flash Tool Lite section: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads IoT - Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone. A user's guide can be found in the same section as well.

I recommend you to check the following document for additional details: . This document explains the methods to flash the Edison module, and mentions the old method (the one that you are trying to do) and the new one. It might be interesting for you.

Regards,

Diego.
