'dd' is a built-in linux tools which allows a sector-by-sector copy of one device to another. It is useful for making a direct copy of an HDD.

You may have got a slightly quicker copy by putting the two devices on different IDE channels, but not by much. Are both of the drives using ATA133, or are they runing at only 33 or 66 MBps?

What command line did you use?
