/dev/sda1   *          63    83891429    41945683+   7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda2        83891491   625141759   270625134+   f  W95 Ext'd (LBA)
/dev/sda5        83891493   264253184    90180846    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sda6       264253248   444614939    90180846    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT

/dev/sda10      446570496   495396863    24413184   83  Linux

  • Why you want to backup with dd? Why don't using Ubuntu's tools?

DD will work, however there are probably better tools, like rsync.

Still if you want to use DD, you'll need to do:

sudo dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/path/to/backup/drive & dd if=/dev/sda2 of=/path/to/backup/drive & 

(and so on)
