I tried to do it as the following :
#dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/sda
But it was not successful. The primary disk is 150GB and the external usb
disk is 20GB. As I check with the 'df -m' , with respect to the used space ,
the 20GB capacity seems to be sufficient. Can you please let me know how to
modify my command to have the os installed on the primary disk to be cloned
to the external usb disk ?
