I want to t for take take the backup and restore the Edison image using usb pen drive.
usb pen drive is not detecting in Intel Edison.
Is usb device is supported by Intel Edison or Not ? please provide the details.
I was able to take the backup and restore the image form/to sd card.
The Edison board doesn't recognize the USB pen drive by default, but mounting a USB flash drive in Edison is very simple, you need to verify that its file system is in a compatible format like FAT32. These are the steps to mount a flash drive on Edison:
mkdir /media/flash_drive_directory mount /dev/sda1 /media/flash_drive_directory
You should now be able to connect a USB flash drive and find its content in /media/flash_drive_directory. Now you can backup the image to a USB drive and restore from it using the thread that you provided.
I hope you find this information useful.
