 Adding a BIG new drive
Author: Michael J. Golini 
Date:   23-04-00 03:34

Currently I am running 3.1 on my server with only an 800
Meg HD. I want to add a new 15Gig drive. How do I transfer
the contents of the 800M HD to the 15G HD? Then I will
upgrade to 4.0.

Any thoughts?

Tar up your old drive's contents and untar it onto the new drive... simple.
