Hi, not sure if this is the right area in the forum to post so please let me know if you think there is a better place I should be asking.
I've been playing with raspberry pi for the past couple of years and over the years i've lost a couple of sd cards due to what I think has been by pulling the power. A couple of cards that wouldn't boot as has become corupted and a couple that have become read only, and i was wondering if there was a way to make it a bit more resiliant?
I have an application in mind where i want to use the raspberry pi with a screen with the browser set up in kiosk mode where i am not confident that i will be able to control how they are switched on and off, in practice they are going to be just switched on and off as and when needed (i.e. switched on at begining of the day and switched off at the end of the day). The raspberry pi will be absolutly brilliant at this, but i am a little bit concerned about the SD cards becoming corupt.
Any thoughts suggestions of anyone that has been able to solve this? I was wondering if the issue is about whether the power gets cut whilst the card is being written or read to? and was wondering if i can load enough up into the ram and so the SD card is only used during the boot up time. As mentioned all its going to be doing is running a browser accessing a simple web site in kiosk mode so not sure if this is possible and would solve or at least limit the problem?
