BalenaEtcherPro: copy-paste a file

I try to copy a file (16MB) from the master-SD-card onto the slave-SD-cards. This would work through the “Clone drive” function. However, it does take a lot of time, as it clones the whole card (128GB) and not only the file on it.
My question: is there is a way to simply copy-paste the file from the master- to the slave-SD-cards with the BalenaEtcherPro-device.
If not currently possible, could that be implemented in a future software update?
Thank you very much for your answer.

Hello @simg welcome to the balena community!

Sadly, at the moment, there is no way to do so. You can either clone the whole drive which copies the whole drive regardless if the drive is ‘full’ or ‘empty’ or flash a particular file. This idea was discussed in the past but is not yet implemented for priority reasons.
