The process of cloning an internal hard drive onto an external one is pretty well described by online guides, but I can't seem to find any info on the opposite.
I want to replace my internal SSD with another one (I'm on a laptop, so I can't just plugin both SSDs at the same time). I've cloned its content to an external HDD and I would like to know if it's possible to copy the external HDD to the one installed.
I have thought of installing Ubuntu on the new SSD, but I'm not sure if I can copy the partitions of the external HDD to the internal while the PC is booted from the internal.
Would booting from an Ubuntu USB stick and doing the cloning from there work? Can I use the
dd command for an external HDD, too?
I'd appreciate any help.
