Ubuntu :: How To Copy One Hdd Onto Another

Dec 7, 2010

My comp has two hard drives: 1: 300gb, 10,000rpm 2: 500gb, 7200 rpm. (Both drives are SATA).First drive is loaded with 10.04 and has many programs installed, tweaks and settings made etc. Second drive has 10.10, but no changes or progs installed.I want to wipe clean the second drive and copy the entire contents of first drive onto it This will save me the trouble of doing a clean install of 10.04 on the second drive and then having to install programs , change settings etc. Is there a program available that will let me do this, so that I won't have to make any changes to second drive after the first drive has been copied to, ie I won't even have to install grub? Note that I am a novice with linux and not very good with computers generally, so the program should have an easy to use gui

General :: Copy A Read-Only File And Make The Copy Writable With A Single Cp Command?

Mar 1, 2011

How to copy a Read-Only file in Linux and make the copy writable with a single cp command in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04)? The --no-preserve and --preserve seemed to be good candidates, except that they should "and" the mode flags, while what I am looking for is something that will "or" them (add +w mode).

More details: I have to import a repository from GIT to Perforce. I want that all Perforce depot files are Read-Only (that is how Perforce was designed), while all other files that were derived/copied from depot files are writable. Currently if a Makefile tries to copy a Read-Only file then the derived file will also be Read-only. This leads to build-errors when cp tries to overwrite Read-Only file second time. Of course the --force is a workaround here but then the derived file is also Read-Only. Also I do not want to mess with "chmod" after each "cp" command - I will do that only as the last resort.

Fedora :: Disk Copy Utility - Should Be Able To Not Only Copy Files But Boot Sector And Everything

Sep 1, 2010

I have a 160GB harddrive which I installed a F12, would like to upgrade to a bigger drive, but I hate to have to re-install everything.

Recommend a good disk copy utility? The utility should be able to not only copy files, but boot sector and everything. So I just need to make a copy, change my BIOS to boot from the new drive and run everything as before.

Programming :: Copy An Entire Line And Add That Copy At The End Of The Same Line?

Feb 6, 2011

how do you copy an entire line and add that copy at the end of the same line?

For example, sometimes I rename a collection of files with a command like:

"mv oldfilename newfilename;"

I am able to add "mv" at the beginning, the semicolon at the end and sometimes replace a word in the middle, but... how to change a line "oldfilename" into "oldfilename oldfilename"... that is already long time a mystery to me...

Ubuntu :: Can't Copy DVD To ISO After Upgrade To 10.04

May 4, 2010

I've been backing up some of my older DVDs to my hard drive, as they were starting to get a bit scratched. Using 9.10, I had no problems. After updating to 10.04 yesterday, however, every method I try to use fails after copying about 80 to 120 MB.I'm running the amd64 version of 10.04, my optical drive is a TSSTcorp DVD+-RW TS-L632H, and I have installed libdvdcss2 from the Medibuntu repository. I can play the DVDs just fine, but I can't copy them.

Brasero craps out with "Error while burning. Data could not be written (Input/output error)", which based on some things I've read also pops up if data can't be read. I've tried the "Save Log" button, but the log is always empty. dd exits with "dd: reading `/dev/cdrom': Input/output error".dd_rescue starts showing nothing but bad blocks roughly at the same point where dd throws the I/O error, and if I run it in reverse, it starts showing bad blocks immediately.k3b seems to work... but it took nearly half an hour (which is a bit longer than it should have taken), it threw a "Problem while reading. Retrying from sector n" error three times, and VLC won't play the resulting ISO, either directly or mounted.

I would say that it seems like a problem with copy protection, except that I have libdvdcss2 installed and I can play the DVDs just fine. I just can't copy them to an ISO. And it's not a matter of the discs being too scratched or a problem with the drive, since as I said I can play them just fine, and I can copy them in Windows using MagicISO.Some of the DVDs I'm trying to copy aren't available anymore, but I'd hate to have to boot into Windows just to copy some discs since I do pretty much everything else in Linux.

Ubuntu :: Cannot See Some Files Nor Copy Them

May 5, 2010

I am upgrading a QNAP NAS - the unit only had 1 drive to begin with. I have taken this original drive out and hooked it to my ubuntu system and when I boot my machine ubuntu sees the volume that was the volume the qnap shared. and it sees MOST of the files. but when I go to copy stuff it gives errors stating things like 'can't copy data2.cab' - when I go the directory where it claims it can't copy data2.cab there is no data2.cab.

Thing is I am pretty sure there *IS* a data2.cab ... just that the rights or something are such that I cannot see / copy it. is there a simple command I can run on the *entire* drive that will set the ownership of ALL files so that I can see and move them? I just need to copy all these files over to the upgraded nas and then I can reformat this drive.

Ubuntu Installation :: Get A Copy Of 64 Bit Vs 32 Bit Sent?

May 19, 2010

is not the right place for this question. When requesting a Ubuntu distro be sent to me I can not see any way of selecting a 64 bit version, is it possible to alter the request so that it is a 64 bit version vs the standard 32 bit version. I would download it but my Satellite connection is not all that great and I have a fairly small monthly cap.

Ubuntu One :: Copy To U1 On Upload

Aug 28, 2010

I am a photographer and upload a lot of photos online. Both to Facebook and flickr. But these sites although great for sharing photos with the world are not ideal backup solutions. I love Ubuntu One and try to utilize it as much as possible but frankly I am more than a little lazy. So I more often than not don't back up to U1. The same can also be said about my document uploads to Zoho and class projects. The idea here is whenever a user uploads a file Ubuntu should automatically copy it to the Ubuntu One folder. This would likely be implemented through a browser extension.

Although the idea and basic implementation are simple there are issues that must be considered. These include size, bandwidth and privacy issues. As such the user may not want to copy every single thing they upload to Ubuntu One. But having a popup come up every time something is uploaded is intrusive and annoying.

These issues could be combated through:
-A strong settings framework
-Zeitgeist integration
-In browser dialogues (see the new "save your password/settings?" dialogues in Chrome/Firefox)

Ubuntu :: Brasero Won't Copy CD?

Mar 20, 2011

I've previously been able to copy CDs using Brasero. Now when I try, the program will copy the disk, but instead of pausing to allow you to insert the destination disk, it will simply eject the disk and then quit. I can copy disks by selecting 'copy to image' and then burning the image, but this is a pain.

I can find no way to copy a cd to ISO in 11.04, either GUI or CLI. Brasero does not have .iso option though the brasero-cdrkit is installed and is latest version.

Ubuntu :: Where Is Cd/dvd Copy Image Saved

Jan 6, 2010

I did it in 8.04, my question is when I left (opposite) click the desktop CD/DVD icon and select Copy from the pop-up menu where does the extracted image end up.Its always worked well enough I never worried about it, but today I needed some copies of a DVD a coworker authored that had one of those lame "Stomper" labels stuck on. It was applied off center and made the disk so unbalanced it appeared to read at 1X or less I was expecting an option to save the image but didn't get one. Anyone know if its still on my hard drive somewhere so I can avoid the tedium of ripping it again?
