Copying Linux Flash Drive

Hi all... first I wasnt sure if this should go here or Debian or.... please let me know and I will next time since I have more questions coming, thanks.

As with the onset of mining (sorry if this has left a sour taste here, any opinions on that are welcome too), I am sure you have been inundated with BAMT and other questions, and I am one of them on BAMT, which I heard run on Debian.

I am running it on an 8GB Sandisk USB drive. The system has been crashing way too often and I have cool temps and good power, so someone suggested I use another drive, that some are not good running Linux, is that true?

Anyways, is it as simple as doing a file copy and paste to another drive in my Win7 machine, or is it a true bootup where I have to start from scratch and burn the img file again? I have a lot of setting in the config files so I rather not have to type that all in, unless there is a way to copy and paste from my Win7 to my mstsc remote window to my BAMT.

Thanks a lot!

So you are wanting to know if you can copy a whole GNU/Linux system from one storage unit to another?

Easy - Use Clonezilla to clone the system image from one drive to another.

So cloning with a Win7 program will still maintain all boot parameters for the linux stick? Then I'll try this, hoping that the crashes are due to corrupted files.........
