Should making a new Wubi disk take a very long time?
I am currently following along to the steps in this answer for increasing the root partition space for my Ubuntu Wubi install: Increase size of root partition after installing Ubuntu in Windows
The current size of my root is 30 GB. I am trying to make a new disk with 400 GB, so I ran the following command:
/host/ubuntu/disks# dd if=/dev/zero of=new.disk bs=1MB count=400000
It's been running for the last 20 minutes, so I'm a little worried something may have gone afoul, but it could be working fine. Should creating this partition take a long time since it's large? This isn't even the formatting step, so I figured it would be fast, but I could definitely be wrong.
EDIT: The disk I am doing this on is two 1 TB drives in a raid 1, with the following space:
root@ubuntu:/home/jsage8# df -h /host Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sdc1 932G 259G 674G 28% /host
EDIT: This has now been running for over an hour. I'm hesitant to kill it in the middle though as I'm not sure what type of ramifications that might have?
