dd to backup a 80GB drive
dd if=/dev/sdb of=~/sdb.img
Now I need to access some files on that drive, but I don't want to copy the ".img" back over the drive.
mount ~/sdb.img /mnt/sdb doesn't work either. It returns :
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
I tried to find the filesystem type with
fox@shoebox $ file -s sdb.img sdb.img: x86 boot sector; partition 1: ID=0x12, starthead 1, startsector 63, 10233342 sectors; partition 2: ID=0xc, active, starthead 0, startsector 10233405, 72517410 sectors; partition 3: ID=0xc, starthead 0, startsector 82750815, 73545570 sectors, code offset 0xc0
Is it possible to mount
sdb.img, or must I use
dd to restore the drive?
