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).

* 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 massive clone.

Thank you Jammy for any help with using this as I have been completely out of FSF projects for years. I thank you once more. Hope I don't need it. tt
Very small lightweight distro
I have very small space to use it. tt

A great piece of backup/restore system software for techies. Bought 2 SSD drives and always keep a copy on the second which is less expensive than buying some brand name backup software.
Once the selections are made, away it goes to a perfect clone that I can switch out the drive and am up and running.
For those that do not understand the terminology, it may appear to be a foreign language and therefore hard to use.

Clonezilla is a great program as long as you only have ONE operating system on your PC. Clonezilla saves the images by naming the disks with the old system: sda, sdb, .... etc. But sometimes it happens that when I start Clonezilla the disks appear out of order. I don't think it's Clonezilla's fault. It may be because of the motherboards of my PCs (ASUS). It may also be the fault of the new Linux kernels. This behavior is very dangerous as an sda disk image is saved as sdb and vice versa. If you are not careful, a Debian11 image on the sdb disk, saved as sda, may overwrite a Debian10 installation on the sda ​​disk. I repeat that this is not the fault of Clonezilla but of the kernel which arbitrarily assigns the order of the disks. To avoid this behavior I usually shut down the PC completely before putting the Clonezilla pendrive. Most of the time the discs appear correctly ordered by this method. But not always, so I have to do multiple reboots. The solution would be to use the UUIDs of the disks but I have to admit I don't like it. The Linux kernel would have to be manipulated so that it respected the order indicated in the BIOS of the motherboards.
