I am under the following restrictions:
- I have a 1.0 GB
.zipfile on my computer which contains one file, a disk image of
raspbian. When uncompressed, this file is 3.2 GB large and named
- After having downloaded the zip file, I have just under 1.0 GB of storage space on my computer, not enough space to extract the image to my computer.
- This file needs to be uncompressed and written to an SD card using plain old
Is it possible for me to write the image to the SD card under these restrictions?
I know it's possible to pipe data through
tar and then pipe that data elsewhere, however, will this still work for the
zip file format, or does the entire archive need to be uncompressed before any files are accessible?
