I need to move my stuff, to another drive before installing a new drive and OS (Xubuntu 12.04). Yes, I regularly backup my ~/ with an app called Back in Time. I don't want to back up my whole home, as I don't want my dot files and such anymore, with the new install.
I know how to backup and restore my FF and TB profiles, now. What's left are the files and folders in my ~/ that I want. Copy and Pasting my Documents, works just fine, I find.
I have 48.3 Gb of Music I want to Copy and Paste to the backup, too. I know people use TAR and Rsync for stuff like this, but keeping it simple with Copy and Paste, is probably best for me.
Is there anything wrong with using Copy and Paste, of 48.3 Gb of Music to another drive (attached USB Drive), to achieve good results for backup and restore?
