Clonezilla a very good and free backup program - video tutorial

Clonezilla is a backup or backup / recovery partition / disk free. Essentially do the same thing as commercial programs Norton Ghost or Acronis True Image.
The program is a little harder to use but the video tutorial will describe the steps of saving / restoring partitions. The great advantage of this live-cd Clonezilla is the fact that we can restore Windows, Linux, Mac operating systems. Being under the LPG license, it can be used without problems by anyone who wants to shelter from possible problems of the operating system. Even if the differential / incremental backup is not currently implemented, the resulting image cannot be explored, the backup can only be done from a CD or DVD - Clonezilla remains a very good alternative to today's backup programs .

    Thank you!

  4. Hello ! I also have a question .. Why can't I see the tutorial ?? He writes me "Server not found..etc, etc"

  5. Howdy! I would also like to know if Microsoft office 2007 and Adobe Acrobat & Reader can be installed on Windows 7. I know this is not the right topic for this question but I have not found a session dedicated to programs that are installed on windows 7. Thanks in advance.

      Last night I made a backup root partition with Ubuntu 4 10.04 ext. Partition has only 10G 5G and busy. 7 backup was done in minutes. I installed Ubuntu anyway 10.10 because I wanted to test reality. Then I restored the backup. Restoration took 2 minutes

      Stop judging software by graphical interface. MAKE A GREAT MISTAKE. There are hundreds of software with a "sexy" interface that gives it a hard time (Go to the Acronis forum and read how many complaints the Acronis True Image software has) Look for an application to be useful, search and look at its power and potential not the way it looks.
      You tied vain graphical interface which is very explicit (There's no one to blame if you do not know nor want to learn a foreign language called English without which you are dead if you want to be somewhat better in the PC ) if we so, censorious find any application.

  10. I subscribe and those referred by axelluny: Clonezilla is a Linux application that involves a higher than average. Leaving this aside, the biggest drawback is that the image of that part result in a HUGE file. And then, considering both major shortcomings, Clonezilla is by far an application unfriendly, which is why I will not ever use after tests made following this tutorial.
    Especially since there are already much more user-friendly applications with what is known as "GUI" for a much easier operation!

      Well in case the system breaks down due to odd / home site and the root (/) to this have to do backup.

  12. So it's enough to make back-up just in / root and recomandsti enough or what to do and / home I possibly .sa and all programs I had installed when backup shape at that

      If you want to have everything as it was, you will have to back up to / home because there are kept the settings and some configurations made for some software. In the / home partition, as we showed in the tutorial "inserting part 1 in the terminal" you have some hidden folders, which you make visible either by accessing Home and then pressing the CTRL + H keys or going to View> Show Hidden Files. Hidden folders in Linux have a "." in front of them. Those folders whose names begin with "." for example “.gnome2” contains settings you will generally find folders with the same name of the software you installed, for example: .operate .firefox and so on.

  13. I am a senior citizen and I also like IT a lot, I also learn as much as I can and where I start. I also experienced this software and I can say that I was not satisfied with it. I have a SATA / RAID array and I can say that he doesn't know how to recognize her. Why? here I admit that I do not know. I use Hirens'Boot CD 9.3 for backup, which also contains Ghost 11 (it also knows how to recognize the SATA / RAID array), recommended by some friends, who taught me to work with it on backups and I can say that it works flawlessly .This Hirens' Boot Cd is Free reason why I asked the "owners" of this site to do some lessons on this CD. Maybe they will understand me and they will do it because I can honestly tell you that it is worth it. Thank you for your understanding! Gigel (I hope you didn't upset anyone.)

      Does raid to see and if you know to use it
      Here's what their website says oicial:
      Clonezilla does support hardware RAID, if your RAID device is seen as / dev / sda, / dev / sdb, / dev / hda, / dev / hdb, / dev / cciss / c0d0… on GNU / Linux. Clonezilla does support this.
      On the other hand, if it's Linux software RAID, no, Clonezilla doesn't support that.
      In translation it supports hardware-raid but on the other hand, ironically, knows how to work with the Linux software raid

        Curious point of view! We have come to criticize all Romanians because some of us do not agree with Clonezilla and we think only from a personal point of view and not, obligatorily, as a whole… I see that the collectivist spirit has not yet disappeared. Clonezilla is a software with an unfriendly interface, but with some certain advantages but also with disadvantages, like all programs, led by Windows and the whole Linux suite. It is human nature to be very satisfied with one thing you have become accustomed to and to reject another, maybe better, but newer. This reminds me of an advertisement on the English highways a few years ago: "I don't like Guinness beer because I've never tasted it." The differences between people are also manifested by the degree of conservatism that each individual has. For the way the tutorial admits some of the commentators, I would suggest them to do a psychological test. It is not something offensive to them, but considering that they are dealing with over 10 visitors to the site, a psychological "tutorial" is required. At least for the respect of the 10 visitors who rate them. Someone said in a comment, good cheese in a dog's bellows. Change, boys, the bellows!

      No matter in which order you backup nor restore order in which you and yes, you can make backup anywhere and on any partition you want because it's just a folder containing some archives and so.

      NOTE: No matter the order as long as you do restoration after another, without booting the operating system of 2 restore sites. More precisely does not restore the root then you restart, you get into linux and then restart to restore the partition home. Restaurants root and then restore the site and home. Come on it's easy.

  20. I prefer Clonezilla. The best! And Free!

But Clonezilla times tells me it can happen something "strange" or my only backup partition 100MB of w7.

      Install Windows partition 7 without 100MB. We have a tutorial on how to do this, you find the search box in the top right. Then try making backup again.

      We tested Clonezilla now and I managed to do smoothly backup C drive that contains Windows 7.Cand I chose the option to save the partition, I was shown the 3 partitions C, D, E without partition with the 100M Windows 7 book.It is essential that this step you choose the second or third partition, where there is more space and the first partition is not partition that contains the operating system.Partitia Chosen now will be the partition backups will be stored ul.Ulterior the next step you are asked which partition you want to get them back up ul.Acum choose the first partition containing Windows 7.Daca you fail to make backup with Clonezilla I recommend
      Backup & Recovery 2011 (Advanced) Free
      .For Details about this program aims tutorial here.

  23. polferis said

    Thanks Dan! But know that I made the right settings for backup. As for her destination, I don't know what to put on C: I put it on another partition with 40GB free. PARAGON I think is good, but I am determined to use a backup program that works as a live cd (HIREN) or stand alone. It's faster and more secure - it doesn't give errors that windows works. I will try Gudus' advice, to install w7 without the 100MB partition. I think this is the flaw with CLONEZILLA, DRIVE IMAGE XML, NORTON GHOST from HIREN. However, if you know any program as I explained above… ..Thank you!
