dd question - split files


Hi

I'm doing a backup of my drive (HDA1), how can I split the files because it can't grow larger than 2Gb?

I'm currently doing dd if=/dev/hda of=/mnt/hdb/backp/backup.img

Thanks

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
