I've seen that there's a good amount of relocated sectors on my home server with one harddrive, so it should be about time to replace it.
Sure, I can plug the replacement harddrive in, format and begin from scratch, but it doesn't feel so compelling.
As this home server currently isn't equipped with any RAID, I guess that I am stuck at connecting a second harddrive and transfer the content from the old harddrive onto the replacement and then switch the default harddrive inside the OS (Ubuntu 10.10).
For me, having zip-zero experience of this, I do not know where to begin.
- How can I transfer the data from Harddrive 1 -> Harddrive 2?
- How do I switch the "main harddrive" inside my Ubuntu 10.10?
