Using DD to Backup and Restore EMMC
#1
I have the Intel 660p NVME (SSDPEKNW512G8X1) installed in my pinebook pro.  I was attempting to backup the EMMC to the NVME drive as an .img and then restore that to the EMMC.  My intent was to find a way to do a backup and a restore for testing purposes. 

I used a process similar to this.  Don't recall exact details...


Backup:  dd if=/dev/mmcblk1 of=/NVME_Folder/emmc_Backup.img

Restore:  dd if=/NVME_Folder/emmc_Backup.img of=/dev/mmcblk1

After the restore I could boot to login screen but I could not log in with my user.  I CAN log in with root.

Any ideas what I missed or could be wrong with this process?
