Or you could just use Clonezilla.
Even GParted apparently has an option to "copy partitions" these days.
Of course, it must not be run from one of the disks you're trying to
clone, those have to be unmounted. A live system would be fine. But,
whatever of the above methods you choose, you should be aware that it
will also clone fstab, partition labels, UUIDs and so on - so you
should plan ahead to change that manually afterwards, if needed.
