I need a command line for ntfs clone which will allow me to --rescue a partition on a hard drive (/dev/sda1) either to another partition on the same hard drive (/dev/sda3) or to an external hard drive (/dev/sdb1)
If it makes more sense then I will recover the data in --save-image form to either of the above two destinations.
My trouble is that I've been unable to craft a command line which will do the job.
ERROR: you must specify an output file
ntfsclone --rescue -o image.img
ERROR: You must specify a device file
ntfsclone --rescue sda1 sda3
ERROR: if FILE is "-" then send the image to the standard output. If SOURCE is "-" and --restore-image is used then read the image from the standard port.
Obviously, if I knew what I was doing then I wouldn't need to ask for help, but, seeing as I don't I'm really hioping there's someone out there who knows what the magic code is :-)
Thanks in anticipation
