Getting my car next week so gonna rip the drive then, I am using Ubuntu Live booting from a flash drive, and want to back the image up to my USB hard drive. Newbie to linux, wondering would this work:
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb/idrivehdd.img
assuming sda is the BMW HDD and sdb is the USB hard drive.
Or would I be better off with using HDclone?
yes that should work, but remember that they don't call it DD "destroy disk" for no reason. HDClone is a lot safer!
