Cloning drive to newer one


(Alyssa Woodley) #1

I just bought a new 500gb ssd.
my parrot is installed on 1tb hdd.
since i only use ~200gb on my hdd it will fit on my new ssd.
if i clone it using dd will it boot just fine?

always has for me. might have to shrink the old partition table first. dd is not the only way though…

Good luck

Most likely. I would boot off a usb in live mode and dd the partitions you want otherwise you could have corrupted data. See here for further info. I would also use rsync to back any important files to an external drive just in case things don’t go the way you want.
