Yep you can clone from one drive to another (as long as the recipient drive is the same size or larger).

I though that was one of the reasons but are there any other benefits.Also would it be quicker to copy my files across and reinstall Mint or could I clone my set up as whole and put it on new drive?

I would, if one becomes corrupt it doesn't (necessarily) take the other with it.

And which application are you using to scan ?

Mark, you've done it again! Thank you.

VB is back up and running nicely.

I had to install the extension pack before it would work - something to do with the version of USB 2 I'd set up in the VMs. Having done that, it's fine.

Thanks again.

Hi Wilton.

Sorry for the delay in replying - I didn't receive the usual auto-email until today !
Beginning with the book was very helpful and I soon got the hang of the basics.  As for intuitive: like most things it becomes intuitive with practice! 

The best way to get the hang of scripting is to have a definite task to perform and accept that one needs to refer to the book a lot at first.  I needed to do some really weird things and found many solutions on the web - in fact I that is my major source of solutions now.  This Forum is also a good source of info as there are so many knowledgeable people here willing to help.  As Mark once told me: "There are no daft questions". 
There are also the "man" pages - the scripting manual built into Linux.  I find it hard going but it's always worth trying first. 

Good luck with your scripting.

General Help & Advice / 2nd Hard drive

Currently dual booting W8 pro with Mint 19.1 is it worth getting a 2nd hard drive( cheap enough) and loading the OS separately?
