I have finally come to this happy moment where I get to run NetBSD on a desktop PC. Currently I have a 500gb kingston SSD with Fedora on it. I want to clone my current NetBSD 225gb disk to the 500gb Kingston.
Just wondering what the
dd command should look like. I know it'll take a while to clone the disk, but I just want to ask if there is any flags I should use.
