Moving 11.10 complete system to a new bigger Harddisk

I would like to move my current installation of Ubuntu 11.10 to a bigger harddisk, since the old one is failing.

I would like to avoid solutions like dd block copying (since there would be unused space at the end) with something cleaner, but I'm open to suggestions.

Partitions info:

Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on Partition type Encrypted
19G 9.9G 7.6G 57% / ext4
59G 50G 6.2G 90% /home ext4 Yes

What is the best way to accomplish such a task, preferably with advantages/disadvantages.
