I would like to prepare a new 32GB Micro SD card with an fresh image of Raspbian Lite or any other Linux system. As in the official documentation, I try using etcher or Win32Diskimager.
However, both tools always reserve all space available on the SD card, not allowing a user to select a partition size.
How can I do a fresh installation under Windows only using a small part of the SD card, say 8GB for example, so that any clone or backup of this image later is not too big in size? In addition, not all 32GB SD cards have exactly the same size (they vary by some Kilobytes depending on the producer), so an image (from a backup) later may be too big to fit on another SD card.
