Rsync is your friend

I needed to copy a Linux system recently. In fact, I ended up copying it multiple times as I reformatted the drives a few times. Rsync did the job perfectly:

# rsync -a /mnt/tmp/mainbackup /mnt/tmp/system

And in the end, my only issue was getting Grub to boot the drive due to silly BIOS limitations.
