comment Help me to replace sshfs with ssh?
Looks like that partition either doesn't actually contain an ntfs filesystem or it is damaged. What does sudo blkid say the type is?

Did you run ntfsclone as root ( sudo )?

FYI, if this is a windows partition you are trying to clone, use ntfsclone instead of dd. It is smart enough to skip the trash in the unused/free sectors, and can compress the image.

comment Tell fs to free space from deleted files NOW
@jofel, no, it isn't. Any time you go over 90% utilization, you start getting lots of fragmentation. You need to free up some more space, not run closer to 100% utilization.

comment What is the Linux equivalent to C:\Program Files?
This is incorrect. /bin contains only executable programs. The Windows Program Files directory contains a subdirectory for each installed application, which contains all of the executables, dlls, data files, and everything else needed by / shipped with the application.

@wazoox, it is required for Windows on non UEFI systems, but then again, Windows is also an outdated relic ;)

Why? What are you really trying to do?

@wazoox, again, the limit for the MS-DOS label is 2TB, not 16. You can't use more than 2TB of the disk using the MS-DOS label.

Also worth noting is that ext4 currently also uses 32 bit block numbers, giving a max size of 16 TB with the normal 4kb block size. Support for 64 bit block numbers is in the works, but not active yet.

@wazoox, the MS-DOS partition table uses 32 bit sector numbers, so tops out at 2 TB for 512 byte sectors, not 16 TB.
