    You are taking what could be one line of shell code and turning it into I do not know what.

    Sorry, but if you want to continue on the path you are on now I can't help you.

    After reducing the size of the HDD partition, I connected the SSD to the machine's motherboard and restarted the machine in the Clonezilla utility, entered the Bash shell interface and checked both the disk partition table and the dimensions using the following commands.

    # fdisk -l /dev/sda

    # fdisk -l /dev /sdb

    here I have taken note of the position of the disks

    sda 64GB SSD sdb HDD 320GB

    then I entered the dd command

    # dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1

    After cloning the MBR, I ran the fdisk -l command again to check if the partition table matches on both disks.

    I quit the Bash shell

    with the exit command

    Now, that's all right, I started the Clonezilla utility, I selected the device-device mode, run the wizard for beginners and select the part-to-local_part cloning option.

    I chose the first local partition from the list (sdb1 - System Reserved) as the source and I pressed the Enter key to continue.

    So, I chose the local destination partition, which will be the first partition from the second disk, (sda1) and I hit the Enter key to continue.

    In the next screen I chose Ignore check/repair file system and I pressed the Enter key again to continue.

    Finally, I hit the Enter key again to continue and I twice answered with yes (y) to accept the warnings and start the cloning process.

    when it was finished I turned it off I removed the HDD physically from the PC,

    and I booted with SSD and it worked perfectly

    Thank you so much gderf for making me reason, on all the steps to do

    I can make no sense of them.

    OK I'll explain them in detail

    From OMV Boot into CloneZilla

    enter on Enter_Shell> CMD

    in the shell I type (sudo su)

    then type (fdisk -l)

    check how the discs are indicated

    sdb 320GB sda 64GB

    then type the DD command

    (dd if = / dev / sdb of = / dev / sda bs = 512 count = 1)


    Boot into CloneZilla

    enter on Enter_Shell> CMD

    I write (sui ^ c) send and type (sudo su) and again (fdisk -l)

    I check the screen if everything is ok

    and finally (fdisk / de ^ c) then exit again exit

    start clonezilla

    send on "device-device mode"

    then on "beginner"

    below on "part_to_local_part"

    I select HDD sdb1 as source, SSD sda1 as destination

    skip checking / repairing source file system

    yes twice


    device-device mode



    sdb2 as source

    sda2 as destination

    skip checking / repairing source file system

    yes twice

    Remove CloneZilla


    I hope it all works out

    you understand now?

    Exactly what are you expecting to happen when you run that dd command?

    I did this:

    Boot into CloneZilla

    Enter Shell

    sudo su

    fdisk -l (to ensure disks)

    then if I understand I have to do this

    dd if = / dev / sdb of = / dev / sda bs = 512 count = 1 (to detect partitions)


    Boot into CloneZilla

    device-device mode



    sdb1 as source

    sda1 as destination

    skip checking / repairing source file system

    yes twice


    device-device mode



    sdb2 as source

    sda2 as destination

    skip checking / repairing source file system

    yes twice

    Remove CloneZilla



    I believe these are the steps


    I have documented myself

    and I understand that

    dd if = $ input_data of = $ output_data [options] Drive-to-drive duplication

    in my case I have the source (320GB sdb)

    the destination (sda 64GB)

    so the cloning command is:

    dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sdb bs=512 count=1 (to detect partitions)

    all this I do from the clonezilla shell

    Did I understand well?

    Be careful when you are logged in as the root user. root has full control over everything and there is little if any protection from making mistakes that can have major consequences up to and including destroying the operating system.

    Read and try to understand the dd man page and/or google for information on how to use dd to duplicate disks. There are many sources for this information.

    Pay particular attention to matters concerning being absolutely positively sure about the device you choose to be the output of the dd command. There is no sanity checking, no popup warnings, no "Are you sure Y/n? prompts, etc.

    dd shows no mercy. The output device will be completely overwritten with no possibility of recovery. If you chose the wrong disk as the destination, too bad so sad.

    I am going to clone the large sized disk

    so you don't miss the OMV system

    I have another hard drive of the same size

    so first clone it with clonezilla

    then I try to transfer to small SSD

    I would use dd to copy the disk. It will fail once the 64GB drive is filled up, but it's likely that it was copying empty space at failure, so the copy should be fine. You have nothing to lose by trying.

    I don't know how to use dd to copy

    do you have any links, where does it explain how to do it, or a tutorial?

    Greetings to all of you

    I have a problem

    I would like to clone the 320GB hard drive where I installed OMV4

    on a 64GB SSD

    320GB HDD> 64GB SSD

    OMV is on a 20GB partition with 3.99 Linux swaps

    the rest of the disk is unallocated

    I tried with clonezilla and other software, but I can't clone the disk. if I clone only the partition, the Boot does not work

    do you have a solution?

    I have already configured nextcloud on the NAS

    and i also have a duckdns address for the nextcloud.

    I want to create another domain for my presentation site for my work

    but my doubt that I'm going to create conflicts between nextcloud and my website

    also because I'm not a genius like you, on these things:(

    I configured Nginx (Websites)

    with "www" folder and activating the various user privileges.

    I uploaded my site to the "www" folder and I see the website locally

    http: //XXX.XXX.XX.XX: 80

    how can I make it public?

    who can help me ... even sending me links to follow?


    Goodmorning everyone
    today I found this tutorial in German language

    I finally configure Nextcloud remotely ...
    but I can only use it with the TOR browser or smartphone :D:D:D
    now who can you explain to me why, Chrome or firefox don't want to connect on Nexcloud? :thumbdown:
    this site is not accessible took too long to respond.
    here are some tips:
    check the connection
    check the proxy and the fire wall
    ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT :cursing::cursing::cursing::cursing:
    what do I have to configure to be able to see this Nexcloud?


    Sending a ping request on [xx.xx.xx.xx] with 32 bytes of data:
    Timeout exceeded the demand.

    if you can open a SSH session ( with putty) winSCP must work, other wise , more info is needed.

    if I use local IP winSPC SmartFTP Fazilla Clients work
    IP 192.168.x.x is ok
    if I use remote public IP or or
    do not work
    but from my smartphone both local IP and public IP work

    in the router I configured
    DDNS dynamic dns
    for duckdns I configured tcp 21 and tcp port 14100-14110

    try winSCP is really easy

    I have installed and configured winSCP the server does not work from a connection
    also SmartFTP idem
    I configured the ports the DDNS nothing to do does not work
    from MAC with Yummy FTP, and from PC it doesn't work
    only by smartphone works
    I do not understand why :cursing:
