View Full Version : [ubuntu] transfer all user files to a new Ubuntu 8.10 laptop

January 17th, 2009, 10:34 PM
My old laptop has USB 1.0 not 2.0, and I think I used up about 10 G bytes in this account.

Now I have a new fast laptop HP NC6320. I have an 160G external USB drive, new / old laptops are net ready.

Is there a How-To on this?

I kindly of used to cpio and tar, hardly use rdist / backup commands.

What is the easiest or fast way on such tasks?

Yes I need to restore Evolution / Thunderbird data files.

I found this link,
