  • An often-overlooked feature of Etcher is that you can point it at the compressed (.ZIP) version of the image to flash directly, rather than having to waste time and disk space unzipping it first. It will unZIP it as part of the flashing operation! This becomes doubly important with the non-Lite versions of the Raspberry Pi image. Those are more than 4 GB in size, so require a 64-bit unZIP program - which Etcher is…

    • Sweet! I just tried it out, and it worked like a charm. Thank you, I didn’t know about it’s unzipping abilities :)

  • Thank you Shawn! Very helpful! Sincerely, Mark
