    Default Copy a USB drive?

    ok, I'm curious about usb drives that have hidden/encrypted partitions...

    I want to be able to stick a usb drive in and copy the entire drive onto the hdd... hidden partition and all, is there any way to do that?

    example: secret agent needs data from usb drive but the person can't know he had the usb drive...

    is there any way to do that?

    You could try using something like dd to make an image of the drive, that could then be imported into one of the forensic tools that are available so that you can examine the contents.

    You'll need to remember to mount the USB drive as read only so that you don't change the data in any way.

    I'm sorry... DD?

    Take a peek at the man page, in short it is a command used for copying and converting files.
