An update on this:
kysioo sent me a few dd images, of which I have spent the last few days trying to dd back to a drive (well a few actually), with zero results, it almost seems like there was nothing at all on the drive at the time of the dd.

I've also run fdisk -lu to get the image partition information on a LINUX machine and I got the following:

fdisk.png


On top of that, any image burners show it as a file that exists, but is 9gb of space.
The type shows as DOS, but this may be because LINUX doesn't recognize it??

But it does show there are no partitions. I will be creating a dd of one of my own drives later, and carrying out the process again, just to see what is expected.

Ideas anyone?

interesting to see, ive created that image on ubuntu machine, with that drive connected, using dd command... so it should be 1/1 the same data with whats left on that drive....

Unfortunately not, I tried to mount the dd image in all ways imaginable, but always 9gb of deep space.
