This system host some users home directories and is a IBM clearcase server.Could make the data on it important .... machines used for testing may be expendable and reconstructable .. loss of surse code respository could sometimes be serious.
However, I still need to do some more research on the system to make sure I am not missing anything.Sensible
One of my concerns is why the drive only shows up as 688GB. It has to be a 1TB hard drive.Possibly not. It shows up with about 3/4 of the number of cylinders of the first drive, so a 1TB + 750GB is possible (though unusual).
Would it be worth using rsync to make a copy of the data on another hard drive?An additional backup of something you have confidence in might be useful.
Also, I was able to get the format command to work........
# echo | format
