How to Transfer Data to a new computer | F40 |

Hey there! I am currently using the Fedora 40 Budgie Spin and i was wondering if there is any easy way to transfer my data to a new computer.

Welcome to :fedora:

This is a very broad question. What “Data” are you looking to transfer? Where is the data coming from or going to ? Is this over a network or using external drives ?

Added f40 and removed workstation

Added backup

Yes it depends on the data.

Doing an rsync backup of everything, including your dotfiles (~/.* like ~/.bashrc) may not be good as you may want to start fresh.

There are many ways to sync normal data. You can use Localsend on both devices and sync over LAN.

Or use Syncthing, also over LAN.

Or just remove the SSD, get an adapter, plug it into your machine, and move the files over USB.
