Working with Raspberry Pi
1. Hardware preparation
- Raspberry Pi 4B x1
- USB 3.2 Gen1 HUB Gigabit ETH HAT x1
- USB 3.0 Adapter x1 (You also use USB3,0 cable)
- USB 3.0 SSD x1
2.Configure Rasberry Pi
- Enter the root directory of Pi
- Enter the directory of USB3.0 SSD
cd media/pi/xxx (xxx is the name of the disk)
sudo sh -c "sync && echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches"
- Copy 2G data to the SSD disk.
dd if=/dev/zero of=./test_write count=2000 bs=1024k
- Copy 2G data to the Raspberry Pi
dd if=./test_write of=/dev/null count=2000 bs=1024k
3.Working with Ubuntu (Raspberry Pi)
- Search disk in menu->Enter->Open the disk
- Choose the correct disk and click the Benchmark Partition option in the Menu
- Click Start Benchmark，Check Perform write-benchmark. and keep other default settings.
- Input the user password and authorize.
Working in Windows PC
1.Connect the USB port ot USB3.0 of PC, and you can copy file to SSD
- Copy file to the portable SSD
2.Connect the USB to USB3.0 Port and connect four phones at the same time
3. Connect the HUB to USB3.0 Port, connect network (The cable and router should suport Gigabit network)
