This does not copy .hidden files. There are quite a few:
find / -name .\*

I would sooner use rsync -avAHX source/ destination
FYI new feature in Fedora 20 is LVM Thin Provisioning. You can create a snapshot of an existing LV and just use that as your new root. No copying. And it saves space because the snapshot uses the extents of the original (without changing them, changes cause new extents to be created that apply only to the snapshot). Basically the snapshot becomes a new LV.
