dd is very slow? Any alts? suggestions?
Using dd to copy some data from a drive to a image file on a usb device.
I am averaging about 1/2 meg a second, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on what the bottleneck is and if a workaround is possible.
Is there any other way of making an image file of a partion?
dd if=/dev/c0d0p1 of=/mnt/usbdrive/test_image.img
Drive / usb are both 2.0 high-speed devices.
