comment Recommend a USB Flash copier (Software or Hardware based) for Keep-it-simple-stupid bitwise copy
I suppose for now this is the answer. On a related WTF, I forwarded the link to someone here who needed to copy a USB flash drive and they tried to read a 2Gb drive and then write to a 1Gb drive and figured out that doesn't work (really?).... So I guess I'll be writing my own 'brain dead simple' tool now which will have to do hand holding and obviously won't use bitwise copy unless the drives are the same size ...

comment help with bash script using find and diff command
Umm, if suid.old and suid.new exist then your script always prints the same thing based on whatever are in suid.old and suid.new without updating those files. Don't you probably want to replace the suid.new file with new data if suid.old exists so you get updated results? Maybe after you diff you should mv suid.new suid.old ?

ls /dev/disk/by-label is actually kind of useful for locating the source drive. I wonder what happens if you have two disks with the same label (e.g. casper-rw).
