Using DD for disk cloning
What's the easiest and most reliable, risk free, way of making an exact copy of a hard drive?
We have a drive that's been messed up by someone re-initialising RAID on it and before we start playing with solutions for fixing it i'd like to get an exact copy of it.
Bearing in mind it won't mount to Linux or Windows at this point, what are the options?
The only one that springs to my mind is DD in Linux. Recommendations appreciated.
