since my original wouldn't boot, I installed a minimal FreeBSD on the new
disk, mounted the old partitions under /mnt and copied from the original to
the new partitions by using:
dump 0af - /dev/ad2s1[adef] | restore xf -
(the partitions adef where done one by one)
The /usr/ partition was 74Gb, and it took (according to dump 52631 seconds (~
14.5 hours) to copy. Both disks are IDE, in the same machine on different IDE
Is it normal for a backup/restore to take this long? Or could this be due to
my failing disk?
if you don't use softdeps on destination disk - it will.
or if it had so slow reads because of hardware problem.
rather be happy it succeeded :) if your disk is failing
