Can I use Etcher to CREATE an image like Win32DiskImager does?
Yes, you can.
Etcher is simply a tool to flash disks. You can flash anything you want.
@benebrady if you mean creating a disk image from a storage device; currently the answer is still “no”, but we’re working on it, and it shouldn’t be too long until that feature ships in a release.
Does this exist now?
Welcome to the forums @danielwoz! The feature to create an image from a storage device does not exist in Etcher right now.
very useful application. hope balenaetcher can create image from removable devices someday.
