RPI 3 backup usb pendrive

Hi,
Have attached a new formated usb pen drive (Ext3)
But Dietpi don’t detect the usb.
I was hopping to backup the dietpi to the usb.
It should work but in the drive manager I don’t see the attached usb pen drive.
If someone could point me how to achieve this, please.
Thanks

Hi,

Thanks.

Bizarre, the device is being picked up by kernel, however, blkid is not seeing any partitions on the device. As DietPi-Drive_Manager relies on blkid, it can’t detect the drive.

Try formatting the drive in another system (eg: SD format full format), then plugging back in and checking blkid.

After reformat I can see it in blkid
But not in device manager
Not available as a backup
Will buy a extra sd card and backup that way
Thanks
