Now I have a new, larger usb drive on which I would like to copy

Ubuntu and I don't see a partition manager. Where do I find it?
Try gparted (ftom the package with the same name), it should do the job.
I was about to ask the same question. gparted is kinda brass
knuckles. Is there something a little bit "kinder" for an old fart?
Expand on what you mean by "brass knuckles". I think I'm older and
fartyer (look ma, I invented a word) than you and gparted is a breeze.
Something like vi I would consider brass knuckles. You know, like a
crude tool that has utility but lacks many amenities other than the
ability to break a jaw. Once you USE vi, it's usefulness becomes more
apparent than you would see at the get go. pico has amenities that are
more apparent from the get-go. That's the diff. So, if there was
something with a better ascii front-end than gparted, it would be better
for someone who has never dinked with LVM, like me.
