Re: [Bug-ddrescue] How to Copy from Partition to Partition?

Thank you for the instructions, they are useful. However I have a couple more

1. You suggest creating a target partition that is slightly larger than the
source partition. Is there a reason why this is better than creating a
partition of identical size? Are there Linux tools that I can use to find
out the exact size of the source partition and create a partition of
identical size on the target drive?

2. Per your response to (1), are there Linux tools that can
non-destructively resize a partition? I tried using parted to resize the
NTFS partition that I created with cfdisk, but it refused, saying it does
not support NTFS.

3. My source partition is primary bootable NTFS, even though it does not
contain an OS. Should I create a primary bootable NTFS target partition on
the target drive? (It already has a primary bootable NTFS partition at the
beginning of the drive containing a copy of Windows XP. This may cause
problems.) If I create a logical and/or non-bootable target partition and
ddrescue to it from the source partition, would I still be OK?

Thank you for your time and attention.
