Boot up and create your raid array
Boot into Clonezilla and get to command line :cry: unfortunately you can’t clone from disk to raid in clonezilla interface, however we can do it from the command Line!
Basic steps are as follows. Replace raidarray with the name of your raid array.
- Initialize raid array with dmraid -ay or kpartx -a /dev/mapper/raidarray
- use gdisk to backup structure of source drive
- Write gdisk backup to raid array
- use ntfsclone to clone to raid array
- ntfsclon –overwrite /dev/mapper/raidarray /dev/sdSOURCEDRIVE
It looks like the Windows Defender Real-time protection can cause issues when trying to copy files on a local drive even if the drive is an SSD. Typically a copy seems to start out great, but then slows down to a crawl less then 1MB/s copy rate. Probably has to do with Defender having to scan every file as it is copied.
To fix/increase the copy speeds you can turn off Real-time protection.
To turn off Windows Defender Real-time protection, open up Settings > Update and Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection “That should open up the Windows Defender Security Center” > Virus & threat protection settings
Now Turn Real-time protection off.
