How can I make a backup of my CF-Card on which WB 3.1 is installed?

If it was Linux or MacOS it's just a matter of using the diskdruid command. Windows I think you will need to use some disk imager software
 
  insert cf, run dmesg and get the device name of the CF that shows in the log
 
  dd if=/dev/sdc of=cf_backup.img
 
  MacOS will be something like:
  sudo diskutil list
 
  Find the CF device name It's typically /dev/disk1 or some number...
 
  Windows, not sure don't touch the thing, def not built into the OS like it is on a proper POSIX system...

Windows will require something like SDImager to create a backup image of the CF to a file on the hard disk. There are several different programs which can do this. I don't have a good recommendation because it's not something I do very often.
