Copying Ubuntu system to new HDD

I had a HDD that has roughly a few years of data on it and Ubuntu as well. I need to remove the entire system to a new HDD. But I'm worried I can't relink the system. Would Clonezilla work for this? If not, how can I move everything over?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Use gparted from the cd, copy the partition and paste on the new HDD. Then use blkid to check UUID and edit fstab file

    Hi,
    By using dd utility you can create a clone of your hard drive. For more info about how to create clone using Ubuntu Live CD: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/19141/clone-a-hard-drive-using-an-ubuntu-live-cd/

    Note: dd gets a bad rap, because like many other Linux utilities, if misused it can be very destructive. If you’re not sure what you’re doing, you can easily wipe out an entire hard drive, in an unrecoverable way. Therefore, before using dd utility, you need to get all info about it. 

    I hope it will be helpful for you.

    Thanks & Regards
