thanks for the pointer to dcfldd, very compatible with dd but some good new features. I especially like the standard progress.

comment Is there a performance difference between running .NET applications via Mono and running them via the .NET framework on WINE?
Wine Is Not an Emulator. It implements Windows API Functions natively under linux, often running faster than on Windows. So, I would expect very similar performance but of course your mileage may vary depending on the underlying system and depending on the implementation of the runtime engine.

Ah, that's nice voting down a valid accepted post with helpful information. I intentionally did NOT give a concrete example, because the danger is that someone will mindlessly copy-paste that and destroy his/her data. If you do anything with lvm, you should be able to find you bearing with the pointers i give.
