Archiving and preserving contents of hard drives

Harddrive archiving:
I usually use ‘dd’ or ‘ddrescue’ on a Linux computer, with the Amiga harddrive attached.
Some controllers give you a byte-swapped image. Check with hexdump -C that the image is dumped with the bytes in correct order. For Amiga disks, it should start with “RDSK” and contain a readable manufacturer and model of the drive. If the bytes are in incorrect order, byteswap the whole image with the “swab” option to dd.

Copy all contents of an Amiga harddrive to a PC
