Default Re: How do I transfer one hard drive to the other?

Be careful with your syntax using dd or you can say bye bye to your data. It is a very powerful command, but thats how I copy a drive.

Acronis. I have used it and it has always worked for me. Just make sure you have all the settings right or else it might wipe one drive or the other accidently.
