Not until it is finished, which may be quite a number of minutes, then it will show files copied and number of seconds taken to complete.

There is a switch you can add which will provide a progress indicator, but the output generated by that usage is usually not the complete picture.

May I ask what was the command you were issuing?

Cheers

last time i did a dd of arch i'm pretty sure (from memory) at bottom of terminal i got output using :

dd bs=4 if=archlinux-2021.04.01-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdX status=progress && sync

I am trying to duplicate active OS partition
dd if=/dev/sdc22 of=/dev/sdb24
I am not sure I can do that on working OS and since I am dealing with up to 30 Gb it may take a while.
