    Want to keep a copy of same OS on new Harddisk.

    I have 80GB hard disk extra without formated.

    How to copy harddisk to harddisk including OS without doing any partions.


    Can any one guide me how to make a copy of same hard disk copy.

    regards

    I believe:

    dd if=/dev/hdX of=/dev/hdY
    where hdX is the old hd and hdY is the new one

    would do what you want.

    If you want a somewhat nicer solution which also lets you create incremental backup you can look here: http://andrewprice.me.uk/projects/pybackpack/
    Why are you not using Fedora Core?

    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.
