View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need Command Help

October 8th, 2008, 09:59 PM
I had a hard drive failure and am now installing Ubuntu on the new hard drive. I have a backup of my /home data on an external disk and I want to move the data over.

So far I created a new /, /home, and SWAP partitions. I am currently installing Ubuntu on /. I've asked the installer to leave the /home partition alone.

How do I get the data from my external drive over to the new /home while I'm using the installer CD? Everything I've tried gives me permissions issues.
