We discussed the options internally with the following outcome:
- On later modules after VFxx the Flashdisk is implemented using eMMC devices. On these devices, the standard Windows APIs (including storage manager) don’t support to create multiple partitions.
- Implementing a solution for VFxx to backup / restore multiple file system partitions is not just straight forward, but requires quite some engineering
- There are very few requests for this feature.
- There are workarounds available
For all these reasons we decided to reject the feature request of generally supporting backup / restore of multiple file system partitions.
I’m afraid I don’t have more positive news for you. It means that implementing the backup / restore will require work on your side. Please get back to us if you need help about how to achieve this. Then it would be helpful to understand the exact process you are trying to implement, in order to find the easiest solution.
You might also rethink the basic approach of having multiple partitions. I don’t know your application, maybe you could simply use different folders in one partition instead.
