Can we access the newly created files after dd if=hda6_last_mon_backup of=/dev/hda6

Hello all,

Just want to know about taking backup of super blocks of each drive.
Consider I have dual boot for XP and linux. Let me explain the steps.

Boot to linux
Execute the command
          # dd if=/dev/hda6 of=hda6_backup bs=512 count=1
Here hda6 is FAT32 drive in XP ( let it be E drive )
Reboot to XP
Go to drive E
Create a new directory
Reboot to Linux
Execute the command
          # dd if=hda6_backup of=/dev/hda6 bs=512 count=1
Reboot to windows XP

Can I access the drive E?
If so, can I see the newly created directory ?
Kindly explain.

Thanks in advance
