I think cp -a is a better option. Also you may need to edit /etc/fstab

better still: # cd /home # tar -cf - . |(cd /home.new; tar -xf -)

Or use tar -xvf if you want to monitor the progress. It will print the name of each file/directory as it goes.

cpio might be faster/better than tar, but I don't know the correct options for it :(
