Looking for a frontended GUI program to restore a specific partition from dd backup?


Hello,

I have a windows XP, and 2 ntfs, and ext4 and swap that I backup using dd if=dev/hda of=disk.image . I would like to restore the windows XP only.

Is there some frontended program with a gui for LINUX that could do the job without hassle, by chance?

I have never used this, so I cannot vouch for its functionality; but, it sure sounds like it can do the job http://www.howtoforge.com/creating_dd_images_with_air

You use the dd's file in a virtual machine as a drive (might have to check for compression) and copy the data off from the vm with some gui of your choice.

I use qemu and call the dd file -hda
