Hi

Iím looking to move my 64GB ssd disk (dual booted to win 7 and ubuntu) to a 128GB ssd disk.

I really donít want to re-install either OS... is there a way to take an image of disk 1 and transfer it to disk 2.

also, my current linux partion has only 1.5GB of free space.. if i was to clone my original disk, how easy or feasible is it to extend the space linux disk size on the new disk?

thanks..

Sure you can make it bigger. There are 50 different ways to accomplish moving the data over. Create the new partitions of the same type and order from the old, just change the size.

To copy the data ...
* fsarchive
* dd
* ddrescue
* gparted
* rsync
* backup and restore
* ....
