I can now see the progress, and it's been 6+ hours for copy 430GB. The HDD is 3TB...
Is there no faster way of doing this?
If I have 2 identical hard drives with the following characteristics:
- SATA 6.0 Gb/s
- 5400 rpm
connected to the same sata cable via a single sata port on the motherboard. How long should a full dd copy take to complete?
So far it's been running for 5 hours and still going...
I am using Linux Ubuntu 12.04 64bit and the command I am using is:
dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sdc
