For my work Laptop I use full HDD encryption and I need to upgrade my 500GB HDD to a 250 SSD drive, my HDD has only around 100GB of data and is created via
GParted does not support LUKS encryption, so I am unable to copy (or resize) partitions.
Using dd would be great but because of the different size I might loos data.
Then only valid option I got so far is to try and re-size the partition and then try a clone with dd (but seems very complicated and prone to failure).
There is any other way to clone the data on the HDD without reinstalling ?
Based on what I have read so far I think reinstalling would be the easiest and fastest solution, but I would like to see your ideas/opinion.
