I am upgrading my hard drives and would like ‘to migrate’ Haiku from one disk to another. I did a search through forum but my word selections did not return anything–maybe other folks use different terminology for ‘system restore from system backups’.
Anyway, I usually accomplished this in BeOS /Zeta by creating ‘zipped’ files of the /beos, /home, and other data directories (with certain attributes set). I remember using Beezer to create the archived system files for this. I cannot use Beezer this time since it is not a 64-bit app yet…no problem, I will the command line tools instead.
I always performed the actual system restoration via the command line via a terminal using a system Zeta DVD (booted into Desktop mode). In my case today, I would use the Haiku Beta DVD to achieve the same thing.
I no longer have my scripts, but I think a re-create them with some trial-and-error tests.
But I was wondering if there is an easier way to do it now.
How do you folks do this activity now?
Thanks in advance!!
