After posting the question, I wondered if the partition copier I tested
in Windows was available in a linux version and sure enough there is one,
a gz version.:
So far, I haven't found one in an apt search.
I don't believe that a partition editor alone can do a good job of
copying a partition to another partition. A partition editor would be
useful for formatting an ext3 partition
on an external hard drive in preparation for 'unstopcp' to do the job of
copying an entire ubuntu installation.
There may be other copiers that can do an indepth total copy.
It's just that I was wondering if anyone has actually done a complete
ubuntu copy to an external harddrive. This would be useful if one wanted to
install to several computers.
