Ok, sounds like a plan. Not that I know what I'm doing. Should I use something like the following command to save my current disklabel? bsdlabel /dev/ad6s1c > disklabel.ad6s1c.backup Then do I just edit a copy of that textfile, change the offsets to 0, then write it back like this? bsdlabel -R /dev/ad6s1c dislabel.ad6s1c.new And lastly... your talk about offsets. The man page for bsdlabel describes using it on the whole disk (ad6) and not a slice or partition. If I run it on ad6, I get: bsdlabel: /dev/ad6: no valid label found If I run it on the slice ad6s1 I get: # /dev/ad6s1: 8 partitions: # size offset fstype [fsize bsize bps/cpg] c: 156344517 0 unused 0 0 # "raw" part, don't edit e: 156344517 0 4.2BSD 2048 16384 89 And there I see the offset of 0 you might be talking about...? Are we looking at the proper label? Just want to make sure before I mess things up.
