http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi there, I am trying to clone a time machine backup hard disk from a macbook air (journalled hfsplus filesystem) using my ubuntu 12.04. So far I managed to extract the disk image without problems using Code: dd if=/dev/sdf of=diskimage Everything seems ok, I can mount the image Code: sudo mount -o loop -t hfsplus diskimage mountpointfordiskimage So far everything works perfectly. I do want to clone this disk though, So I am plugging in a new hard disk, erasing everything using fdisk (just to be on the safe side), and then Code: dd if=diskimage of=/dev/sdf Everything (Hardware)
