comment Backed up over wrong hard drive
> If you do not have backups, your data wasn't important. That's not true. My data was important, I tried creating a backup, and messed up the process. If the data was not important, I would not have tried to back up the drives, and I probably would still have the data...

comment Backed up over wrong hard drive
@Mat, Not possible, because I was creating a backup of the drive for the first time, and it went wrong. i.e. I backed up over the wrong drive. The drive which got written over also has no back ups. I was going to backup that drive next...

Thanks, now I just need to figure out how to not get the password to stay in the terminal history.

@sparticvs, I am not in the position to setup a VPN connection to test this unfortunately.

comment Can't connect to an external RDS TSG server from home
I think I need the /p: at the end, so when the user pressed the enter key, the user gets prompted for the password. If I don't have /p: at the end, they have to enter the password into the command string which stays in the history and is a security risk. Also, if you look at th screenshots, you will notice that the [use my rd gateway credentials for the remote computer] option is ticked, so it seems the the same credentials are used for both the user and the gateway.

comment Full DD copy from hdd to hdd
@Gilles, so to get progress report, do I use sudo sh -c 'pv /dev/sdb >/dev/sdc' instead of sudo sh -c 'cat /dev/sdb >/dev/sdc'?

@Gilles, I have pv installed and am currently copying the data using the cat method you suggested. How do I use pv to get a human readable progress report?
