Linux Mastering Development

Installing to internal disk from persistent linux on USB drive

I’ve been using linux on a USB stick with persistence. I have been thinking about finally installing it to an internal drive.

I was wondering if there is any way I can install to the drive and also keep the applications and their data which is present on my USB stick.

Digging a little, I found that persistent linux just stores all installed files in a separate partition. Is there an automatic way of getting these applications and data to my internal drive? If not, what how difficult would it be to pick and choose the right files to copy and paste manually?
