Hi Folks,

I'm interested in trying out an SSD on my Ubuntu distribution. I've spent a lot of time tweaking Ubuntu just the way I want it and really don't want to reinstall everything. Is there a method/app/way to clone my boot HD onto an SSD to I don't have to reinvent the wheel?

I was kind of in the same situation you were in a few months ago but all of the reading I did indicated that clone/re-image to an SSD is not conducive to good performance. Most of the stuff that I read stated that there was an alignment process that took place during installations. Being in your situation, I sprang for new installs of everything.


That being said, you can very easily and quickly clone and image your new drive with Clonezilla. Its free and fast.
