The fsck is ok, the filesystem is ext3. /dev/sdb6 is a RAID container,
it is ok, I can use it with large file and dd, without any problem.

I tried to dd all my /dev/sda (wich is physical drive and not a RAID
container) to the dat using : dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/st0. It worked....
/dev/sda is 8GB.... Without any error. Perharps it is because /dev/sdb
is a logical RAID volume ????? Perhaps it worked once but it won't work

Has anyone in this list experienced something similar ?

I'am currently trying to dump all the filesystem of my /dev/sda... I
hope it will not work, otherwise I don't know what I will do !
