http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have two questions; 1. Am trying to back up my hard drive to an external disk. The external disk is Fat32 formatted and the problem is that it can only take files which are maximum 4gb in size. The disk am trying to back up has 18gb data. Whats the way around this? This is the command am using Code: dd if=/dev/sda1 of=Hdd.iso 2. Suppose that Hdd.iso gets written successfully, how do I recreate the partition structures onto this (or any other) hard drive, since Hdd.iso will be one large file? (HowTos)
