Clonezilla is a partition or disk clone tool similar to Norton Ghost®. It saves and restores only used blocks in hard drive. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (Server Edition).

Clonezilla, based on DRBL, Partition Image, ntfsclone, partclone, and udpcast, allows you to do bare metal backup and recovery. Clonezilla live is suitable for single machine backup and restore. While Clonezilla SE is for massive deployment, it can clone many (40 plus!) computers simultaneously. Clonezilla saves and restores only used blocks in the harddisk. This increases the clone efficiency. At the NCHC's Classroom C, Clonezilla SE was used to clone 41 computers simultaneously. It took only about 10 minutes to clone a 5.6 GBytes system image to all 41 computers via multicasting!

Features:

  • Free (GPL) Software.
  • Filesystem supported: ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, xfs, jfs of GNU/Linux, FAT, NTFS of MS Windows, and HFS+ of Mac OS. 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. You can also remotely use it to save or restore a bunch of computers if PXE and Wake-on-LAN are supported in your clients.
  • Based on Partimage, ntfsclone, partclone, and dd to clone partition. However, clonezilla, containing some other programs, can save and restore not only partitions, but also a whole disk.
  • By using another free software drbl-winroll, which is also developed by us, the hostname, group, and SID of cloned MS windows machine can be automatically changed.

Note: This download is the Clonezilla Live ISO file suitable for single machine backup and restore. Users must burn the image to CD/DVD or mount the image using Virtual CD/DVD Software.

If you need a massive deployment solution, try CloneZilla SE.

USER REVIEWS

"Great free alternative to Norton Ghost"

Reviewer: -Boaz

Review Date: 2017-06-30

Pros: Does a good job cloning & imaging disks

Cons: A plain vanilla Linux GUI.

Other Thoughts: While the interface is not as pretty as some of the other imaging/cloning software out there, it does the job. The program is free (Open Source), and the do periodic updates to the software.

While there may be software out there with a nicer GUI (like Acronis, Norton, etc.), the software is free and does a good job.

There are YouTube videos explaining how to use the program, and also other sites with tutorials. Once you learn how to use it, it's a solid program.
