Hello all,

I need your suggestions, regarding backingup my server.

If I mount external drive's share using CIFS into my linux server, and schedule to copy all data on my harddisk /dev/sda using dd, how it would be?

I want something like..
dd if=/dev/sda of=/mnt
however, dd do not work like this, it would give error something like /mnt is directory.
