Suggestions on Migrating strategy
I have a Fedora Core 5 box that has been running for years. In the last week or so, the main boot drive is failing. I've tried numerous sector level recovery programs to stabilize it, including Spinrite, and I have it so that I can keep it alive for about 5 hours before it just dies a natural death.
I have a backup of this server with Mondo Backup. I'm trying to get the best suggestion on how I can migrate all the data off this drive and over to a new drive, then just simply swap the boot drive over to the new one and continue with minimal interruption.
This (obviously) isn't a RAID box, nor is it a critical business system. Its a home computer, but I'd still like to find a way to do a drive swap over painlessly if that's possible.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
