This is basically what I ended up doing in the end, except with mv. Unfortunate there is no tool meeting mv and rsync halfway.

@justbrowsing - Good call on screen. I was wondering about verbose but I guess it's too late to restart tar right now. And iotop has been my favorite utility for the last few days :)

@justbrowsing - the problem now is that I need to merge/resume. Can dd do that? If some of the source files weren't deleted already, I'd just delete the destination dir and mv the source again. It would have taken only 24 hours had it not been interrupted.

@terdon - Wanted to use mv -f but tested it on a subdir and got mv: inter-device move failed: '(foobar)' to '../../data2/repo/foobar'; unable to remove target: Is a directory. And yes, I'm using ssh.

comment Windows 7 fails to start, even after HD wipe and reinstall
I used the partition first, then used the DVD's after I gave up. I have tried the install at least 4 different ways thus far.

comment Windows 7 fails to start, even after HD wipe and reinstall
Thank you. Before I try this, would you mind explaining two things? (1) What is the intent here by creating them through diskpart; and (2) Did you purposefully leave out the ~100MB and additional ~220GB partitions Samsung wants me to create? I really have no idea what the small one is. The big one is probably the (unnecessary) Recovery partition.
