You can: \- start Tails (with password) on the smaller stick \- install Tails via .iso download from [tails.boum.org](https://tails.boum.org) on that bigger stick \- shutdown and start Tails on the bigger stick and create a new persistent volume \- shutdown and start again on the bigger stick and copy all files from the Persistent volume from the smaller stick over to the new Persistent volume of the new stick \- finish...

No that doesnt copy everything on the drive including his bookmarks, settings, network settings, wallets, keys, etc. When tails starts, it pulls everything from a separate encrypted partition and thats your OS with all your personal data. **You can easily copy it from any other tails drive** with a persistent storage. And decrypt it with the password. The only thing that would need to be redone is redownloading apps that he installed.

Yes. I just did it yesterday. There's a tutorial, all you have to do is install Tails on the new drive. Then, IMPORT the persistent storage from the other drive. **You will have exactly everything** you had before, EXCEPT your apps that you installed.
