I have never used dd to clone a hard disk.
I use rsync for a lot of my backups , and I was wondering what would be the best tool to clone a disk. I don’t want 3rd party software also. I want built in command line tools.
I know rsync will resync where it left off if I encounter a problem, what about dd? Do I absolutely have to creat an image before cloning? Ex: dd if=/dev/sda of=sda.img or I can use dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb?
