Advertisements Hello - have been posting about my upgrade to 12tb drive no the 10tb DIY thread. Thanks again to jmbach for that help on that thread. I wanted to post a specific thread about best and fastest ways to clone my 8tb roamio drive - as i prepare to upgrade my roamio plus from 8tb to 12tb. Can anyone point me to best and fastest ways to clone my 8tb drive? My offline inova fd2002 dock got stuck at the blinking 25% light trying to do an offline clone of my 4tb ota drive - but I don't want to waste 12-20 hours on this 8tb clone and not know if it's actually working after it didnt' seem to advance on the 4tb clone. The HDD Raw Copy worked great on my 4tb but took 20 hours - and I'd like to do it faster as this roamio has the cable connection and we are using it alot during this virus home 'confinement' - so I'd like to get it cloned as quickly as possible. would ddrescue be quicker - and is there a live bootable image that lets me clone with ddrescue in a linux environement where I assume it would be quicker? I've also found another tool poking around online - hdd superclone HDDSuperClone - SD Computing Service there appears to be alive cd image to use it outside of windows. Anybody use this before? Am I correct in assuming a clone will be quicker on my machine booted into linux directly vs. within a windows program -as was done with the hdd raw copy clone that was a windows 7 interface. do most linux live cd's/bootable images have ddrescue as a command option - or is that a specific image - ? Do you know anything about hdd superclone? thanks for any cloning suggestions.
