I just installed Fedora 22 and I've now realized that the hard disk I took was too small. Is there a way to migrate the installation to an other disk that I have and that's larger? I wouldn't want to do the installation process all over again.

I wouldn't really recommend it, but this looks like the answer you are looking for.

I think regardless you will want to do a

cp -av

to copy your files with the old timestamps

I think that the problem is that the current disk isn't big enough and he's bought a new one.
