QNX 2.15g backup

Post by Nick Bargnesi / Karol Ful » Fri Jun 20, 2003 6:21 pm

Hello,
Is there a way to create copies of the QNX 2.15g floppies for backup
purposes? I've tried Linux's dd, Windows/DOS diskcopy, and QNX fdformat,
dinit, dcopy 1 1, then the boot command, and nothing works. I can't boot
from the disk I created. Otherwise, it looks the same (filesystem tables,
what not).
Thanks,

fdformat followed by dcopy should work. It does a sector by sector copy.
There is no need to do a dinit in this case, as the information would just get copied
over.
