wow! I get chewed out on the ubuntumini list for asking a  
hypothetical question
and here I find I ask the wrong questions about backing up that  
additionally are inappropriate to the context of this list!?

methinks Ubuntu users have become a sour lot in the short time I've  
been on sabbatical! ;)

in any case, here goes round two of my research into to know how  
musicians safeguard their assets and final deliveries:

ok let's pick a common scenario:

- you are working on a two partition drive on your studio laptop
     - one is  '/'  the other is  '/home'
- you run out of space while working on music project due to working  
at a higher sample rate/bit depth
- so you buy a larger HD and install it

- how would UbuntuStudio musicians deal with this scenario?
- basically you want to image/migrate/clone/mirror the original drive  
(containing 2 partitions) somewhere then restore it on the new drive

- step by step - how would people go about doing this in their studio?

<I'm assuming the functionality needed for this task would be a  
subset of the set functions that exist in the tool used for general  
backing up would have>
