- How would I speed up a full disk dd? 9 answers
I am using the dd command to erase a pen drive with this:
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdd bs=4k && sync
/dev/sdd is the designated device.
The pen drive is 16GB in size and this process takes a very long time.
Using dd, is there a way to speed up the erasure process?
