Read More

Clonezilla is a partition and disk imaging/cloning program similar to True Image®. It saves and restores only used blocks in hard drive. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (Server Edition).

Features

  • Filesystem supported: ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, xfs, jfs of GNU/Linux, FAT, NTFS of MS Windows, HFS+ of Mac OS, UFS of BSD, minix of Minix and VMFS of VMWare ESX. Therefore you can clone GNU/Linux, MS windows and Intel-based Mac OS, no matter it's 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x86-64) OS. For these file systems, only used blocks in partition are saved and restored. For unsupported file system, sector-to-sector copy is done by dd in Clonezilla
  • LVM2 (LVM version 1 is not) under GNU/Linux is supported.
  • Multicast is supported in Clonezilla SE, which is suitable for massively clone.
  • Based on partclone to clone partition. However, clonezilla, containing some other programs, can save and restore not only partitions, but also a whole disk.

Alright... using CloneZilla was one of the biggest decisions of my life and yes, CloneZilla did convinced me to do that. I am from IT background, particularly software... but i do have a little bit of interest in hardware too. So, i have a laptop around 3 years old and wanted to replace my harddrive with a new one. The plan was to replace my existing working Toshiba 500GB harddrive with a new WD 500GB harddrive... CloneZilla did the Job Amazingly and i has almost no issues with anything at all. I love CloneZIlla and would recommend it to anyone who is trying to Clone either a Windows or Ubuntu(linux) hard drive as it works perfectly with them. Please note that it works with other system too... but i have only tested it on these two for now.

NIC card no longer works. Booting from image, all goes accordingly till system reboot and the legacy os loads (windows). Reinstalled NIC, troubleshooting event logs (shouldn't matter when OS powered down) but I recalled an operation during the cloning process telling me it's notifying/triggering an event within the powered down Windows OS, i figured something might have been corrupted in the registry. I was right but decided it's more work repairing the registry vs doing a fresh reformat of my OS. Thanks for wasting 2 hours of my LIFE!! If this is true, why in the world do you need to trigger ANY events to a user machine offline OS instance if the cloning operation occurs between two independent disk? I understand the latter if mounting the directory to an active volume/disk shared with Windows but in cases like mine (cloning external-to-external HDD), this should run independently. ie. build files/cache in ram disk, and do whatever it is you linux guys do to ensure ZERO impact to users data outside the scope of the source/destination disk. Either way, I just want to share this is a poorly written application from my perspective. You should be more forthcoming about any procedural ramifications to a users data before someone approves a batch process of linux commands to jack up their data and OS. Maybe i'm way off and missed something, but if im not, shame on you jerks.... Either way, your UI is not intuitive. I own Acronis and paid for it but was hoping this had more functionality. Well it does and them some... Including the above.. Thanks again

Just got a 128GB SSD for christmas, my previous "only" had 64 GB. So I plugged the new SSD into the eSATA port, downloaded CloneZilla, installed it onto my USB drive using UNetBootIn and rebooted. Performing a clone was pretty straight-forward (the visual design is poor - don't use if you expect a fancy UI) and only took 1/2 hour. After that I plugged in the new hard drive into my laptop, booted and it just worked! Zero issues, no additional configuration! This is excellent software that gets the job done! Thank you! PS: I going to donate using PayPal as soon as the bank transaction is done, however it be nice if there would be other payment options.

Excellent product been using for years but it's starting to look dated. It does what it's supposed to do really well but the interface is very clunky (just the wording and order of things) so it could be better! It could also be quicker (don't understand why it has to keep on mounting all the drives all the time, can't it just remember?). Could there be a simpler version just for home backups? There's lots of features which I never use (just do the same thing again and again, can't I get it to remember that)? All in all though it's saved me and my computers a number of times so I'm really just wishing for it to be better still. Nows-nowt

To be honest: Clonezilla isn't as user friendly when you first see it appear on your screen. You'll have to use it a couple of times to get the knack of it. But when you figured out how it works, it just WORKS! And it works absolutely great in every way! I've been using this tool for years, and it NEVER dissappointed me so far. Very recommended!
