Re: [PLUG] Convert from Hard Drive to SSD

Anybody suggest a good strategy for this?

1. Boot off a USB drive, or something else where neither the HDD nor the SSD is in use.
2. Mount the drives to /mnt/hdd and /mnt/sdd
3. rsync -avH --progress /mnt/hdd/. /mnt/sdd/.

I kept a Gentoo installation going for over ten years across three different HDDs this way.
