I need to clone my 300GB disk to 500GB disk with dd, but the old disk (300GB) has too *big block size.
Will this change the block size of output partition too? I understod that
obs only meant to be used during copying, and would not change the partition block size?
dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb obs=4096
Note that this hda contains only one NTFS partition with Windows 7 installed which I try to clone to the new disk.
*I chose too big block size when I thought I can put only vmware images on the drive. But that did not happen since main OS disk failed sometime ago and now my OS is on disk that has a huge block size.
