I run vanilla Ubuntu 20.04 as my daily driver on a Lenovo ThinkPad P72. There are 2 drives in it, 1 Intel M.2 SSD where
/ is mounted and a Seagate 1 TB HDD where
/home is mounted. Partitions are not encrypted.
Recently, I started to see SMART reporting bad sectors on the Seagate drive and I was forced to do a
fsck on it during a reboot. I bought a Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB SSD drive to replace the Seagate drive. I haven't done the swap of drives yet ... Is there a straight forward way to do this without having to reinstall the OS? Can I possibly clone the Seagate drive into the Samsung with a tool, replace and reboot?
I assume this is doable but that the devil is in the little details (such as partition UUIDs).
