dd is your friend in that case. You can get the devices name using lsblk.

Then copying will be just to run: dd if=/dev/{srcdev} of=/dev/{tgtdev} bs=4M

This will copy block by block, from {srcdev} to {tgtdev}.

Once completed, you will have to expand your partitions on the target drive
to use it's full size, since the partitions will be sized from the source
drive size when originally created.

Cheers!
