First, I'm new here, forgive me if I've posted this in the wrong forum, it doesn't quite seem right for Hardware to me...
I'm trying to copy an NTFS partition from one drive to another and I'm stuck. I want to copy /dev/hda1 (20Gb NTFS partition on a 60Gb disk) to /dev/hdb (30GB disk, no partitions).
dd bs=64k in=/dev/hda1 out=/dev/hdb1
Which I picked up from another board, this fails and complains about in being unrecognised. Maybe this was old, anyway I then tried 'if' and 'of' instead:
dd bs=64k if=/dev/hda1 of=/dev/hdb1
and now get this error: "dd: writing '/dev/hdb1': No space left on device"
Is this because I need to create a partition to write to first? What do I need to do to get this to work? Or am I missing something else?
Thank you in advance
