We answered this, but not in exactly these words....

dd copies all the bits on the drive, partition, whatever. ALL the bits = EVERYTHING.

dd does not undestand files, filesystems, etc. It only copies bits.

hi,

sorry for the late reply.

i created the floppy and had zip file that required password. I opened the image using winhex, in "pw=" the password doesnt show...

i was wondering if i put the password there myself would it damage the file or would it damage the image?

thanks
