Currently doing a storage reorganization: cloning the system onto the new SSD, and cloning the StarCitizen SSD onto former system SSD.

GNU/Linux should handle fine (even easier with Btrfs filesystem), and resizing a LUKS partition may not be too complicated.

But StarCitizen's Windows 10 ? Ow ow. Will probably need to carve partitioning right with GParted.

Protip: (triple check before using)

dd status=progress if=/dev/sda bs=2M | lz4 - system.img.lz4

lz4 -d system.img.lz4 - | dd of=/dev/sda

Oh right, small additional hurdle: I have an encrypted swap partition on there too.
Will probably simply create it anew.

Alright that wasn't hard, although scary when hot-nuking the former system SSD while mounted (because double UUID and somehow it booted on the wrong SSD).
Now injecting StarCitizen Windows 10 into the recycled SSD.

wow wow 25 MB/s write speed? I download faster than that...
Sure the Crucial M4 isn't the most recent SSDs out there, but... damn

ooookay that's more than one hour remaining, despite the lz4 compression of the free space.

Shower time!
