copying to a larger disk
I am swapping out hard drives on my desktop. They are both pretty close to being the same size and they are both by the same manufacturer. What I plan to do is put the new one in boot up with a live CD and copy over EVERYTHING to the new one. Then take out the old one and just carry on like normal.
My question is: What copy command is most appropriate to copy EVERYTHING and/or what cp options will do what I need to do? I know I don't want to use dd as that will copy over the partition table as well.
