Subject: clone a drive
Now that I have my laptop back, now I want to put a new larger drive in
Ideally, I would like to: copy /dev/sda1 to /dev/sdb3
remove the 120GB drive
install a 250GB (or larger)
user the USB stick to formatand
partition the new drive
copy /dev/sdb3 to /dev/sda1
Can that be done?
If not, how can I get my current set up to a new drive?
Maybe there is a better option, but I would use rsync. This will
synchronize your 2 disks. If there is an error, restarting rsync will
resume the sync.
rsync -alvn for a dry run (option n is for a dry run)
Remove the -n flag to sync when the dry run completed.
