Here's how to get the progress of a long dd-copy:
- Open up a terminal (T1) and run your dd-command.
- Open another terminal (T2) by pressing Ctrl+Shift +T
- In terminal T2 type in: ps aux | grep dd
- Find the Pid for the dd-command
- In terminal T2 type: kill -USR1 <pid>
- Go back to T1 to see the stats printed.
