BTW, some places have recommended commercial solution like Norton Ghost
or Partition Magic.  Do these products work on FreeBSD's UFS format and
grok partitions-in-a-slice?


Partition Magic only manipulates slices and does not know anything about partitions within slices - especially FreeBSD partitions. I would guess that Norton is the same because it is made for Microsloth environments. UFS wouldn't have anything to do with it - that comes later with newfs.


Ghost and, IIRC, Drive Image (the Ghost equivalent from the makers of Partition Magic) will handle unidentified (i.e. UFS) partitions, but only as a sector by sector copy, so you can't take advantage of those products ability to scale up/down the partition (MS definition) sizes when migrating to a bigger/smaller disk.
