Hi. I have a drive from a Windows machine (NTFS) that I think may have
some problems. I'd like to make a copy to play with so I can leave the
original undisturbed for now. Is this what I should do?
dd if=/dev/hdx of=/dev/hdy # where x=original, y=copy
Along those lines, if I did the following
dd if=/dev/hdx of=/path/to/image
would I be able to mount the image with something like?
mount -o loop /path/to/image /mnt/mountpoint
