Copy contents of one partition to another.


Hey all.

I just got a new hard drive. I installed Red Hat 8 on it.

My old hard drive also has Red Hat 8 on it. I just want to copy all of my files from my old Red Hat 8 installation and plop them into the partition of the new installation on the new hard drive.

How would I go about doing this?

Thanks.
