You would need a fairly sophisticated file-system-specific disk
mirroring utility to do that incremental update. There's no way you
could do it with just 'dd'. Furthermore, synchronizing the disk images
will have to be done with the file systems unmounted or mounted
read-only. If you try to copy a file system that is mounted read-write,
you will find that the destination FS has a bunch of fsck errors --
basically the sort of errors you find after pulling the power plug on a
