Re: Best Imaging solution OSS or otherwise

Clonezilla does physical dumps of disks and partitions. The only downside is it needs to be booted, but I've found it useful for whole disk dumps. For file backups, I use rsync. I rsync etc, home and another userdata partition.

»clonezilla.org/

With any new backup software, make sure you can restore before going b*** to the wall.

Good to know, I've used it for my Ubuntu partition before but never for a whole machine.
