I have a hard drive that contains several ext3 partitions an NTFS 
partition and a FAT32 partition.

Is it possible to copy it's contents to another drive of a different 
type but nominally the same capacity (one drive is 2.5" the other 3.5") 
using some sort of bitwise copy?

If so then what commands do I need to do it?

I could do it manually by creating the right partitions on the second 
drive and copying the files, but I'm wondering if there's a less tedious
