Would somebody who has a player that does Live Pause please do an fdisk -l and give me the information that returns? (Also called timeshifting)
here are the information returns from mine.
/ # fdisk -l

hope it can help
Tibeau, yes, thank you this helps very much. I finally got my backup drives so that I could start playing around with the partitions on mine.
There's a script in the iomega drive that will automatically mount most of those partitions, but I was unable to determine the purpose of 3 of those. I'm thinking that partition 2, with about 512K, is the same as my partition 1 and contains the OS. But partition 1 on yours is 190 M and partition 6 is 4M. I don't understand the purpose of either of these. According to the script, partition 1 is a UDF filesystem. Partition 6 is never mounted in the script. Do you know what either of those partitions on your drive are used for? I'm thinking partition 6 may be the livepause. But I don't have any idea on partition 1.
