Will this also transfer the filesystem structure?

I presume you want to trasfer all the files from one (or more)
partition(s) in the old hard drive to a new hard drive. If so, try the
command "dd". man dd(1). There are examples at the bottom of the man

Other commands that may be used are: tar & cpio (man tar & man cpio for
more info).
