hard drive – Can’t read/write via `dd`: got /dev/disk2: Permission denied

I can’t do anything via dd with my disks.

Got Error:

dd: /dev/disk2: Permission denied

Steps:

  1. Check disks:
    enter image description here

  2. unmount:
    diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk2
    enter image description here

Then want to backup disk to the mac:
Example:
sudo dd bs=4m if=/dev/disk2 of=/Users/pk/Desktop/PiOS_full_root.img

Got error:

enter image description here

What causes this problem? why dd sends this error from sudo?


PS

there are similar topics around. But nothing works.

  • I check system preferences and gave full disk access to iTerm2 (doesn’t help)
  • unmount via diskutil unmountDisk and diskutil unmount
  • Change USB ports (many people said because of the physical lock of sd card.

Any suggestions, what to check, and how to fix it?

When I tried to download a file from google drive, it said it was injected with viruses

I’ve tried to use cloudconvert, which shows me error 403. Then I’ve tried to add it to my google drive, make a copy, and then download it, but it just says that the file has virus and then nothing happens. What can I do? It’s really important for me to download it.

[edit]: I’ve added the result I obtain each time.

Drive clients to your door with new OVH VPS & Dedicated Servers For WHMCS 1.1.0! | NewProxyLists

1. OVH VPS & Dedicated Servers For WHMCS 1.1.0

Today, we are thrilled to bits to be presenting you with a new update of OVH VPS & Dedicated Servers For WHMCS. The up-to-the-minute 1.1.0 version is a true stepping stone in the development of this dual-purpose module – curious to find out why?

Primarily because now it will allow you to not only supervise but more importantly also deliver OVH dedicated servers to clients without leaving your WHMCS – the same way it is already possible for VPS. What they will also appreciate is the power to create snapshots of owned virtual machine and use them, later on, to either restore its settings or simply make a safety backup before introducing any changes. Apart from that, the module has been also armed with support for choosing an operation system license in the VPS configuration settings.

Raring to explore plenty of other compelling elements of this momentous release?

2. Heficed Case Study – EasyDCIM

Business automation and a bird’s-eye view on owned infrastructure are two best friends of each data center entrepreneur.

As the recent EasyDCIM interview with Vincentas Grinius from Heficed shows, the process of finding the perfect software tool that would allow a data center owner to manage all inventory parts from a single place is not always a piece of cake. It was only after they entrusted their business management to EasyDCIM that they finally found the suitable conditions to expand their IP addresses provisioning operations.

What encouraged Vincentas and his company to explore EasyDCIM tools and how did this benefit them in the long run?

Can’t See External Hard Drive Files Anymore After Installing A Windows 10 Boot

I wanted to fix my old laptop and for some reason I thought it would be okay to install a Windows 10 Boot onto my external hard drive. After installing it, I was unable to see all of the files I had on there. I was wondering if there is any way to reverse this or recover my files. It’s a 2TB WD Elements Hard Drive and was nowhere near to full yet. I have included an image below of what it looks like on explorer.

germany – Do I need a vignette to drive in German motorways?

I will need to drive to Berlin soon (July 2020) and I’m trying to figure out if Germany requires a Vignette to use their motorways, like neighbouring Switzerland and Austria do.

This article seems to imply that this will soon be the case, but I can’t tell if this has already been put in place.

From what I read here, it seems like I won’t need it, but as this seems to be an open issue I would prefer some form of official confirmation. Is there any official German site that describes the current situation?

time capsule – Need help setting up a Timecapsule as a NAS drive so i can access it away from home

Hi all I jsut bought a time capsule a1409 for really cheap. I have factory reset it and I wiped the internal drive 2tb.

I have a macbook pro 2019 13inch base running catalina 10.15.5, And what I want is the timecapsule to act as a NAS so when im away or in my room I can drag and drop files from it without ever needing to be connected to the same network as it. I hope you understand so far.

has anyone done this before If so please tell me how to. I saw this post Can I access my Time Capsule remotely if I haven’t set it up at home? and this starts in the middle does anyone know a post where it starts from the factory rest. So im in airport utility and its asking me if I want to create a new network or connect to an exsisting one.

Thanks you for your help.

google drive – How to link a word to some part of my document?

Suppose in my Google Docs document I write the definition of a word.

5 pages later, I write that word. I want to be able to click in that word and the document take me back to the definition, written 5 pages before, just like Wikipedia does when you click in an element of the summary and it takes you down below to the description of that element.

Is that possible?

Is it possible for tourists to drive unhindered to the top of Mauna Kea on the big island of Hawaii?

Last year access to the top of Mauna Kea was blocked by protesters. They were attempting to stop construction of a new telescope. Does anyone know if regular access to the top has been re-opened?

As you can see, c0/e0/d13 is flagged as UGgood (after replacing the drive), and drive group 2 is missing row 11.

What is the correct procedure, using storcli, to add this drive to the RAID? I would rather do it via storcli instead of rebooting to use the (to me) more familiar BIOS RAID tool.

links – Creating Hyperlinks of Google Drive Items in Alphabetic Order

The original post that I got the google script editor code from was here:
Get share link of multiple files in Google Drive to put in spreadsheet
It works perfectly fine, but what I want to do is show the actual google drive link in the excel file (not the name of the file that has a hyperlink attached to it. I managed to do this by deleting #”‘ + f.getName() + ‘”# from the code, but the problem is, because they are no longer listed by file name (e.g. LG1, LG11, LG5), but by drive links (e.g.http….), the links can’t be sorted with the sort feature on sheets. Does anyone know how I can deal with this?

I will post the code below so

function myFunction() {
  var ss=SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet();
  var s=ss.getActiveSheet();
  var c=s.getActiveCell();
  var fldr=DriveApp.getFolderById("<id>");
  var files=fldr.getFiles();
  var names=(),f,str;
  while (files.hasNext()) {
    f=files.next();
    str='=hyperlink("' + f.getUrl() + '")';
    names.push((str));
  }
  s.getRange(c.getRow(),c.getColumn(),names.length).setFormulas(names);
}

PS: The reason I am trying to do this is because VLOOKUP doesn’t seem to work properly in excel when you try lookup cells with hyperlinks attached as it just takes the placeholder string (e.g. LG1) and gives you that without the hyperlink (e.g. http…) that was attached to it.
Another potential solution would be knowing how to sort the initial folder in the first place to my liking (haven’t managed to get that to work though)
