Running Raspberry Pi 2 from USB drive

Until now I have used Raspberry Pi with micro SD card and while it works for some times I have had lot of corruptions. Not shutting Pi properly down plus unstable power wreak havoc on the SD card. And as you may have read from my previous tutorials I like to run servers on my Raspberry Pi so yeah SQL + logging = high read write are no way to treat small SD cards.

So for loads like that there should be more robust solution.

And for that here is small write up how to use USB thumb drive or USB hard drive as your Raspberry Pi-s root drive. You still need SD card for boot but as you learn from this tutorial it is much easier to replace the static boot drive then whole system, especially  if you haven’t backed up your system 10 seconds prior to failure.

Boom. Congrats you won broken filesystem. “Structure needs cleaning”.

So here is how you can maybe fix it.

Setting up SSHFS on Raspberry Pi

This will be tutorial about how to set up RPi torrent box… oh wait i need to mount external drive ….okey then…. This WILL be tutorial about how to mount usb drive on RPi …. Wait I need to transfer large files between RPi and my PC …….fuuuuuuuu…  Fine  it will be tutorial about how to set up SSHFS on Raspberry Pi.
I prefer SSHFS over samba because its pain to set up samba on RPi(not really but i’m lazy) and yes if you want connect many windows or android devices its better solution but for a linux to linux file transfer it super easy and quick to set up, another downside is speed. But because I don’t transfer 100 gig files my 10MB/s is adequate.But hey the SSHFS is encrypted which is nice.
Anyway…
