Alan Kuras asked:
I have a problem with drive cloning.
Im using dd on damaged disk with bad sectors trying to make an image from it. Im booting computer with Live Linux CD .
Damaged disk: sda 146GB (NTFS)
External drive: sdb 300GB (NTFS)
After running the command below im running out of space on disk sdb.
dd if=/dev/sda of=/media/sdb1/hdd.img bs=4096 conv=noerror,sync
The question is why im running out of space on disk sdb ?
UPDATE: There is 300 GB of free space on partition sdb1
/dev/sdb is a device special that represents the disk drive; it isn’t a filesystem, but you’ve tried to use it as one.
Instead, try this:
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=4096 conv=noerror,sync
