Assuming you're dealing with a POSIX-style filesystem. If you're cloning a Windows
installation, for example, this is unlikely to work. In that case though, I recommend
investigating ntfsclone (part of the ntfsprogs package on Debian). AIUI it only copies the
populated parts of the ntfs data without messing with it too much.

If you don't mind creating partitions you can do it more efficiently

bind mount the actual file systems on the machine to be backed up, then
It's a little more work than copying the drives themselves, but it only
actual files and you don't have to reboot the system to be copied. File
and ownership are preserved by the -a option to rsync.
