Clonezilla (Live & Server Edition) review

,----[ Quote ]
| Ever experienced a computer crash the day 
| before you have to turn in an important 
| project? As we all know, backups are your 
| best friends in such situations. There are 
| several types of back-up systems out there 
| today. One method is to clone your hard 
| drive, so that you can restore everything 
| as it was in the event of a crash. There 
| are a few software packages, both 
| commercial and free, which help you to do 
| this. Norton Ghost is probably the most 
| commonly used solution for years. But letâs 
| take a look at Clonezilla, which is an open 
| source alternative that gives Ghost a run 
| for its money.


Pardus 2009.1 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| All in all, Pardus is an excellent 
| distribution, a pleasant surprise to people 
| like me who like to pick random distros on 
| distrowatch and try them. I almost had a 
| religious experience with it, amazed at how 
| well a distribution could be made at great 
| detail. Back in the Pardus 2009 days, I 
| remember all linux distros failed to bring an 
| out of the box stable KDE 4 system that looked 
| nice, but Pardus did that, and now with KDE 
| 4.3 itâs even better. Unfortunately their lack 
| of packages made me switch to another 
| distribution after a couple of days, but it is 
| perfect for people who donât demand a big 
| collection of packages, the everyday man/woman 
| who just want to work using the usual tools. 
| If you want to recommend a very nice, stable 
| and functional KDE distribution you should 
| really take Pardus into consideration.



Clonezilla Live Images Disks For Free--And For Geeks Only

,----[ Quote ]
| Although free disk imaging sounds enticing, Clonezilla Live
| is only for more advanced users. The program runs off of a
| Linux Live CD (or USB flash drive), and it worked perfectly
| for me. But to be blunt: The Linux command line and
| character-based dialog UI makes R-Drive Image's character-
| based GUI, which most people find intimidating, look like
| Mac OS X.


Review: CloneZilla 1.2

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm really impressed with CloneZilla. While it's not
| graphically driven like Parted Magic is, it's still very
| easy and intuitive to use and one I would recommend for
| newer users (but not complete newbies) to use when copying
| or cloning their hard drives.



Manage partitions and disks with GParted-Clonezilla live CD

,----[ Quote ]
| For a home user or an
| administrator with just a few systems, the
| GParted-Clonezilla live CD
| is an excellent tool for managing disks. It can
| save you several hours when
| preparing new disks or migrating partitions from
| one disk to another. It's also
| a fantastic way to move a partition that's not
| around free space into a bigger
| partition without much fuss.
