comment Configuration to backup of several HDD simultaneously in linux
I didn't find a way to use it to copy a whole disk, and it would be nice to do it knowing the filesystem so that there is no space wasted. Anyway I saw how to copy a single partition only, do you have any pratical example on its usage for my purposes?

@EricJLN: right. Think about notebook's hard disks for example, they almost always have more than one partition.

That's true but I guess the USB bottleneck should come first, and it would be ok for me.

comment Configuration to backup of several HDD simultaneously in linux
My main issue for now is making an image that I'm able to restore. I'd like to do it in parallel but i'm not sure what problem you're mentioning. I'll use different USB PCI cards, what's the problem? The disk where I'll save images? Anyway I'll give this dd a look.

comment Configuration to backup of several HDD simultaneously in linux
I don't want to backup more than one partition from the same HDD simultaneously. I want to get just one image of one hard driver, no matter what and how many its partitions are. Acronis does something similar. I want to be able to backup different hard drives at the same time, but that's not what you were talking about, right?
