Copying root to the ssd went fine. However I am concerned at the number of errors rsync threw up during parts of copying across to the /usr sdhc card. Some folders copied across fine. Others threw up errors like:
'rsync: recv_generator: mkdir "/tmp/car-usr/src/ndiswrapper-1.57" failed: Invalid argument (22)
*** Skipping any contents from this failed directory ***'
or (and I didn't manage to copy all this down before it scrolled off the scree):
'rsync: symlink ... failed: Invalid Argument (22)'
Am I right to be concerned about these? I am a little suspicious of the sdhc card I've used here. (I was having problems with a superblock until I reformatted it; I've bitten the bullet and ordered a new higher capacity sdhc card, which should get here eventually.)
Out of interest would this method of copying the /usr folder across offer any advantage over rsync? Or does rsync use the same underlying method ($find . -depth -print0 | cpio --null --sparse -pvd)?

I just replicated what you are doing using a mint Mint 12 installation. Worked fine. rsync had no problems at all. So I suspect it is your card.
