OK, I understand that 10000000 isn't good, I just thought it wouldn't
harm. But if it is a transfer rate killer then I'd better think of
typing ^C now. The command is running for 6 hours now.

What would be the fastest way to do that sector by sector copy?
I'm using dd right now,
dd if=/dev/ad0 of=/dev/da0 bs=10000000
On the flip side, your blocksize (bs) there is quite high for no good
reason. I'd pick something more like bs=64k or bs=128k. The default
(512) is too small for what you want, but 10MBytes is silly.
Not only that, but "10000000" isn't even correct - it needs to be a
multiple of sector size. Generally, using suffixes will do the right
dd if=/dev/ad0 of=/dev/da0 bs=1m
An idea how I can check the current amount of transfered byed
alongside the running dd command? Or watch the current i/o rate?
Ack, I mean "bytes" :)
