dd includes the risk of bad filesystem and corrupt image contents.
tar would avoid this.

Nice catch 👍 . Will enhance raspiBackup to save the root partition via tar and check for badblocks during restore.

Next version of raspiBackup will have the new option -B which forces raspiBackup to create a tar backup of the boot partition instead of a dd backup.

Branch nextVersion now has the -B option to create a tar boot backup and the -C option to check for bad blocks when formating the restore SD card.

@jab42 : Please grab the new version and test :-)
