[arch-general] how to migrate installs between hard drives?

I think NTFS is the issue.  I don't think that it supports the same 
permission and ownership capabilities as native *nix file systems.

For example, when I mount my windows partition, I have to specify a gid 
and a umask, else I don't have permissions to access it.  From my fstab:

/dev/sda2 /mnt/windows ntfs ro,gid=users,umask=0222 0 1

Must the destination be NTFS?
