Exact Copy of Compact Flash Card


Hi there,

I am looking for a way to take an EXACT copy of a 128mb compact flash card into file form. I want to be able to send this file to someone else so that they can then copy it to their compact flash card and have a duplicate.

This has to include multiple partitions and boot sectors.

Any suggestions of software / methods to acheive this ?

Any help would be appreciated thanks...

*bump* from an irc linux help channel....

the answer will be to

dd if=/dev/sda of=backup bs=1k

which will create a file called backup of the device sda (in this case my compact flash)
