Not if you're on Windows. Windows doesn't recognize multiple partitions on removable media for some reason known only to Microsoft. Instead:
Boot your NST from your NookManager SD card
Connect your NST to your PC with a USB cable
NookManager will present the two partitions as two disks - NookManager and Backup(?).
Copy the backup files from the Backup disk to your PC.
Check the backup file size. Mine runs around 325 MB.
Use something like 7Zip or WinZip to verify you can open the backup file and that the uncompressed size is about 2 GB.
Now if you want to use the whole card for storage and you are on windows:
Put the SD card into your PC card reader (or a usb card reader plugged into your PC)
Use a partition tool like the built-in Windows Disk Management or downlaod a free tool like Paragon Partition Manager or MiniTool Partition Wizard to repartition and reformat your SD card to a single partition.
