I've gotten into a wierd situation where the best course seems
to be wipe a (BSD) partition - without chnaging the size or location
- and then restoring from backup.
Based on the Handbook (sec. 12.3.2) the correct would seem to
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/da1 bs=1k count=1
newfs -O 2 -U /dev/da1e
restore from backup
Have I overlooked anything?
