Trying to make an image file from a parition and then write it to a usb drive. I will later mount the image file using the -o loop (loopback interface).
So basically my command looks like
dd if=/dev/cciss/c0d0p1 of=/mnt/usbdrive/test.img bs=4M
For some reason as soon as the file hits 1.5gigs, the thing slows down to a crawl... I barely get .2 megs/sec transfers rates.
The USB interfaces are both usb 2.0 high speed. Should be blazing along at +20MB/s not almost .5 ?
