At the moment I'm using a dualboot enviroment with Win2000 on hda1 and Slackware on hda5. Is it possible to create a backup of my Win2000 and place the image on another drive for backup. I'v used DD before to create smaller images but none with a size exceeding 700MB. Is DD safe to use to create the image of aprox. 5GB? Would using "dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/hdx/backup.img bs=1 count=1" be sufficient?
