I know how to do a fresh installation on an external (USB) HDD and make it bootable but I'd like to avoid configuring it and installing all the apps and tweaks.
Can I just make the drive bootable and the copy all the contents of the partition to it? Should I clone my internal partition somehow?
My actual install takes less than 32Gb. I'm planning on a 100Gb partition on the external drive. Is it feasible?
I would be extremely grateful for a work path and caveats.
BTW, the drive is an "oldie" Maxtor One touch 320Gb.
