    Is it possible to mount rootfs on a MicroSD card for extra storage?

      Hi,

       

      I'm just curious about this possibility to expand the storage space using MicroSD card. 16G may be sufficient for many applications but having extra space can make you truly worry-free from getting storage full. And a MicroSD card slot is already available on the expansion board anyway. I think this can be helpful for people who use Joule as a general purpose single board computer to do experiments for different projects, rather than developing specialized software only for a specific product.

       

      I know it's possible to mount the rootfs on MicroSD card for Edison(How to boot Edison from an SD card (Linux) ). As Joule has a relatively complete UEFI and bootloader support, I was wondering if it is possible to do something similar. Are there any known software/hardware limitations that prevent doing so?

       

      Thanks,
