Using dd to clone drives of different capacities?
Hello, I currently have all my data on an NTFS partition on a 500gb hard drive. I recently bought a 640gb hard drive that I want to use as my main drive so I will have more room to set up a dual boot, while leaving the 500gb drive empty for backups and shared storage. I'm planning on just booting up a live CD and using dd to copy all of the data. Will there be any problems because the disks are not the same capacity? Will the extra 140gb be available to use if I am copying from a smaller hard drive? Also, the 500gb drive will still have the Windows bootloader on it after I remove the partitions, how can I remove this bootloader? Thanks in advance for the help.
