How to copy single partition?

Postby Johneames » Wed Nov 22, 2017 3:26 pm

I presently backup my multi-OS multi-paritition boot drive (fedora core 4/ext3, WinXPServer/NTFS, WinXPHome/FAT32) with the command:

telinit 1; cp /dev/sda /dev/sdb

And this works.

Is there a command to only copy a single partition instead of an entire device?

And what about the grub stuff. Is that in a partition? My grub stuff is corrupted or the grub.conf file is bad. I can boot windows manually via grub but not fedora. How can I restore the grub and linux partitions but not the windows partition?


I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
