|Backing up a disc partition|
I'm after a way with free tools to back up a partition on a disc to something like DVD. I would ideally like to shrink the partition to it's minimum size, and then turn it into something which is easy to recover later.
Perhaps I should shrink it and then just gzip the device file? I could then mount it via look back if I ever needed it again. What's the best way to shrink a NTFS partition on Linux these days?
