Tank you
I found plenty of 512GB Seagate NL35 series FC AL disks which are goign 
to be throwed away at work inside a EMC2 old storage.

They should work on sun Blade 1000, at least I hope so.

only ONE question:

if I "dd" the old 18GB disk on this new 512GB disk I will waste almost 
500GB of space... because the disk wil lbecome 18GB as the source.

is there any way to "dd" the old 18GB content on the new 512GB disk and 
have a free 500GB partition available  ?

thank you
