Adding Disk Space

I need to add some disk space to my /public folder. I am currently
running a single partition on a single 125 GB disk drive. My intentions
are to mount the new drive to a temporary folder, /pubnew for example,
copy everything from /public to /pubnew, delete the files in /public,
and then rename /pubnew to /public. On the surface, this sounds okay but
it is so simple that it makes me think I have missed something. Can
anybody see a way that this procedure can get me into serious trouble?
I'd appreciate any comments.
