SD card add-on from Pine (reduced size)
#1
I purchased a 32GB MicroSD card along with my Pine board as an add-on item, and it came with the board. I found it to have only 27GB of space and so obviously I am unable to add any 32GB OS image on it. The card has no brand name on it and I am not sure how to "resize" or increase the size to 32GB. Now I did the 1024/1000 math and it just doesn't add up. If I had purchased the card elsewhere I wouldn't be complaining. I purchased it from Pine/Backerit. Can someone tell me how I go about now? Thanks in advance!

Are you sure it is not pre-loaded with an operating system that is taking up some space? Your PC may not recognise the OS if you insert the microSD into it, because Android/Remix/Linux-based OSs all use an ext type filesystem which is not natively recognised by Windows, I think. Instead, Windows will probably ask you if you want to format the card.
