I'm using the Fedora Live CD to backup a hard drive over the network to another computer. I'm using the dd command to create a raw image. Is it possible to resume a dd command? The transfer takes almost 24 hours, and it stopped halfway through. I know you can dd only portions of the partition, so if i knew the size of the first portion, can i transfer only the second portion and concat them later on?

thanks,
