dd works on Windows?!
As a Dutch, I feel chastised. Although I would understand when it comes to ExxonMobile.Seriously, don't build stuff below sea level. Bad, wrong, wrong, bad.
Before the flood, in the legends of old, we had a 360 days/year. And the earth was not tilted. And the earth had no oceans, just sea's and there was vegetation all over the planet. Then something happened. Some blame the aggresive Atlanteans, some blame a meteorite.See, 13 months of four seven-day weeks each would almost work. Almost. Leaves you wanting for one day. Two on leap years. Yeah, we need to speed up the Earth's path around the Sun a bit. Maybe move it closer? I see no downside to this plan.
Do you prefer dd to GParted?I use dd to create images in the main. You have to make sure you're squirting it at or from the right block device, but if you use /dev/disk/by-label even that can be relatively painless.
Have you ever tried Ventoy? Saw some comparisons between that and Rufus on alternativeto.net...I need to read and write various flash card images. The way i always did this in linux was with dd, and that did the trick. What is a good windows equivalent? Simply put, i need to be able to read...superuser.com
When I wanted to get an iso or such onto a usb stick, I first tried YUMI, which makes the stick bootable, gives you a boot menu, and let's you put several boot media onto the stick next to each other. But some boot media didn't want to cooperate with that approach. I then used Rufus, which does just put the image onto the drive.
You can find both here
They're different tools for different jobs as far as I know. I'm still on MBR based systems here, so I still use fdisk myself, but that leaves me with a blank partition I need to either populate using mkfs or dd if I've already got an image I want to burn. Perhaps gparted lets you copy partitions around, I couldn't say.Do you prefer dd to GParted?
