md5 Hash of HD?
I am in the process of cloning a HD. Before I wipe the original drive I was wondering if there was a tool to create something like a md5 hash of the entire drive to verify that I have an exact copy. It does not necessarily have to be an md5 hash and any command line BASH options would work for me as well.

in terminal, try:
sudo md5sum /dev/sdX (replace X with whatever letter represents the drive you want to hash)
Also make sure no partitions on that drive are mounted
