I want to backup my Windows machine before I put Ubuntu on the hard drive instead.
Following the instructions on the VirtualBox website it says to create an
image.dd file using
I booted up from the Ubuntu live CD, connected the external hard drive and then tried to use
dd to create the image with the following command:
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb1/image.dd
However I get the following message:
a dev/sdb1/image.dd: not a directory error
Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
