Background: Got a new laptop recently. Got Ubuntu working on it and copied everything I needed from my old laptop's Ubuntu installation thusly. However, I had an NTFS partition on my old machine with some data I'd like to keep. I've resized this HDD's partitions to make space for it, but I still have to copy it.
If worse comes to worst, I guess I could make a new NTFS partition of the same size with GParted, mount them on both machines, and use ssh/rsync to copy all the files, but there's probably a better/easier/more efficient way to go about it. I did some Google searches to the effect of "copy ntfs partition over lan," but there's too much out there to process. I try to solve these problems with Google when I can, but in this case, I think I've gotten to the point of needing to ask people directly.
