I would like to move my baker to a new server infrastructure.
What files do I have to copy from which directories and what steps do I have to complete?
Install new machine
Generate new identity
Start and synchronize node until up-to-date
Stop processes on old machine
Copy and overwrite all files from folders ./tezos-node and ./tezos-client including node identity to new server
Start new server?
I still have my old identity, nonce file is preserved and my alias for my addresses are available. I am not sure about a lot of files which are additionally stored in the mentioned folders.
Can you please correct my steps and give feedback?

Here are two issues:
You only want to copy and overwrite config.json, peers.json and version.json in .tezos-node as well as all settings in the .tezos-client config directory.
Overwriting the blockchain data folders store,context within the .tezos-node directory would take a long time. Also if you plan to do that, syncing a new node with a new identity would not have any benefits.
