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?

@Gilles, thanks for the answer. I have another five 3TB drives to clone and will try the cat option next. As far as I can tell, that new dd command is going to take another 3 hours to complete, to about 11 hours in total. If the cat approach is faster than 11 hours for the second 3TB HDD, I will use that method for the remaining drives.

@Groxxda, No, it's a single sata cable, which allows 2 hdds to connect to a single sata port. It's doing 19MB/s for some reason...
