Is it posible to backup a partition to a file and restore it after?
Yes, this is possible. Just specify the name of partition (for example
/dev/hda1) rather than the whole hard disk (such as /dev/hda).
tries has failed...any help?
You can only restore on a partition of at least the same size (and same
geometry (number of heads and sectors), if windows). Also watch out if
you have dependencies between partitions (for example, one partition
might contain a grub or lilo blockmap referring to sector offsets on
another partition). If any such dependancy exists, all involved
partitions need to be saved and restored together.
We successfully do single-partition saves and restores here at the LGL,
and at lots of other places.
