I couldn't find an answer to this by searching even though I'm pretty sure it's been answered before. Maybe I need lessons in searching...
I have a failing 80GB hard drive. It has my main Linux partition (reiserfs), my /extra partition (reiserfs), my Windows partition (fat32) and my Linux swap. I ordered a new 80 GB hard drive (NOT a Maxtor this time) and now I need to copy the entire drive over to the new drive.
Is there any way to do this all at once, preserving all the partitions, MBR, data, etc? I can get to a copy of Norton Ghost, but I don't think that supports reiserfs. Maybe I'll choose Ext3 next time in light of that, but for now, does anyone know how to solve my problem?
I've used dd before to write floppies, will that work with whole hard drives also? Any potential to need to reinstall anything when trying this?
In case it helps, I have a second hard drive with plenty of free space to hold this entire drive if I need to copy in two stages.
