Questions about źdd command╗
 
I'm using for the first time the dd command, and I'm getting confused with some commands.

How can I run a hashing algorithm on the image that I created with dd command?

I can't answer your questions directly, but just about everything you ever wanted to know about dd can be found here:

Learn the DD command

I do want to warn you though, be very, very, VERY careful using dd. It does no safety checking. Give it the wrong output value and you can quite easily overwrite important data using it. I know this from experience.

Thanks a lot for your reply David!

I already checked that DD Commands page before... I couldn't find any example that I could create an image from one sector to another! :S
I couldn't even check the proper way to run a hashing algorithm in the image.

Read again.

Code:

man dd
/count
/skip



Cheers,
Tink

Link that David provided: Learn the DD command is a thread that is very helpful to learn some basic usage of 'dd'. Not the 'man dd', which is useful for understanding the command.
