I back up my entire system, including Windows, by copying the entire
contents of one drive to another using the dd command (boot to Linux
rescue DVD). I have bays that allow me to remove the drives, and after
copying father to son I use the son.
During the last backup I had an input error part way through a 100 GB
vfat partition. I completed the backup using conv=noerror, and recorded
the record number (1MB records). The father drive, containing the
error, is a brand new drive.
A windows check of the partition does not reveal any problems.
Presumably, I have a corrupt file on the father, which could be restored
from the grandfather. Is there any way I can find which files are on
the effected part of the drive?
