    IDE & SATA Data Transferring


    Hey,

    I have a SATA HDD with two partitions (/;/home). I also have an IDE HDD with an NFTS partition which has Windows XP installed on it.

    I want to transfer my music from the IDE HDD to the /home partition on my SATA HDD.

    How would I go about transferring these music files to my SATA drive, without using any removable media?

    Thanks in Advance
    Tom

    Also, if I then formatted the IDE HDD (which is quite old; 20GB), would you recommend I use this as swap space?

    mount your ntfs drive, make sure you have ntfs support compiled in and then simply

    mkdir /mnt/share
    mount -t ntfs /dev/hdb1 /mnt/share

    of course remember that hdb1 and /mnt/share are variables...
