Posting here since How to check progress when using dd ? was closed as a duplicate... With gnu dd, as of coreutils v. 8.24, the status operand supports a new LEVEL of information: progress. When used with status=progress, dd will print data transfer statistics on stderr approximately every second. status=LEVEL The LEVEL of information to print to ...

You create the partition with the bigger size (done), then restore the backup to the larger partition without any change to either. Then resize the copied file system to the partition size (use ntfsresize), that will work. http://linux.die.net/man/8/ntfsresize PS: You may need to check the partition table and set the same attributes (partition type, ...

All of the following commands are equivalent. They read the bytes of the CD /dev/sr0 and write them to a file called image.iso. cat /dev/sr0 >image.iso cat </dev/sr0 >image.iso tee </dev/sr0 >image.iso dd </dev/sr0 >image.iso dd if=/dev/cdrom of=image.iso pv </dev/sr0 >image.iso cp /dev/sr0 image.iso tail -c +1 /dev/sr0 ...

Look in your kernel log messages (dmesg, or /var/log/kern.log) for more detailed messages from the SATA drivers, if it was a hardware error. Also useful: smartctl -x /dev/sda. If it was just an attempt to read past the end of a partition or something, that might also show up in the kernel log. To get dd to keep going after an i/o error, to read the ...

You are using the default 512 bytes dd block size. You would significantly improve performance by using a larger block size, say 128k or even 1m. There are two outputs because you are running two dd commands, the first one is the device reader and it shows an I/O error. You are likely using LVM given the device name you use: /dev/Storage/Storage. Are you ...

I can confirm that opening the disc with VLC does bypass the protection. However, when using dd, I had to use this command after opening VLC (discovered by loading the disc and using the directory exposed in VLC). dd if=/dev/sr0 of=image_of_disc.iso Which is different from many posts I have read that say this command should work: dd if=/dev/cdrom ...
