# tar cf - --one-file-system -C /var . | tar xpvf - -C /mnt/var
what would be the best way?
I do it this way:
dd if=/dev/ad0 of=/dev/ad2 bs=8m
Where /dev/ad0 is the source disk and /dev/ad2 is the destination
disk. Make sure nothing is mounted. This process takes place at sector
level, so the boot sector, the partition table and even empty sectors
are copied. That someone might want to resize some partitions
afterwards to be able to use that extra 10 GB.
