I've backed up three 10 gig hard drives using the dd command. However, each one of the images is exactly the same size and none are 10 gigs:

-rw-r----- 1 root root 4294967295 May 22 05:44 home.img
-rw-r----- 1 root root 4294967295 May 21 08:57 mandrake.img
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4294967295 May 19 10:23 www.img

Am I just crossing my eyes? Is there an option to dd I should be using?

My "www" disk crashed a few weeks ago. I'm still nervous about committing to drastic measures to try to fix it (that's how I got into trouble in the first place) until I feel confident that I retreived all the data. (Partition table and MBR are corrupted.)

Thanks for any help.
