Not really, but GParted can copy partitions [including NTFS] from
one disk to another -- a simple copy/paste operation. So if you
don't have the same trouble with it that you've had with dd, why
not use GParted instead?
You're welcome? Don't thank me unless it works... ;-)
I kind of wonder what the actual problem is, btw, as this message
doesn't really solve it, just suggests a possible way to avoid it.
If it's working, the diagnostics say it's fine.
If it's not working, the diagnostics say it's fine.
