Clonezilla, a HD partiting tool

I done more than a few HD partitions with partiamge via the Rescue CD. Works
well. The only slight annoyance is not being able to select from a list of
backup images. These have long and meaningful names once one can see them,
but remembering them is another matter.

Clonezilla is another front end to partimage. It is a live CD like Rescue
CD and it comes from Taiwan. This leads to the English is not my first
lanaguge slight on the instructions.

Nevertheless there is also the culture impression. While doing a test
restore of an image the Question is asked going to .... is this what you
want? y/N. Giving the yes option results in

I ask you again Are you sure you want to.... y/N.

Rather friendly I thought, and not the same style that one sees from
elsewhere.

Clonezilla does show up a list of possible images one can restore from, which
makes it easier to use than plain partimage.

If one wants a whole disk backed up, just chose this option and then
Clonezilla will backup all the partitions.

A folder is used for the partition files and the other files connected to
the image(s).

In some ways it is more complex as it seems that there are so many screens
to follow compared to Partiamge/Rescue CD but it all about making one choice
at a time. The command line is given before the backing up starts so one can
use this if you are doing it often.

Anyway there is another player on the field. You might like to give it a
try.
