Clonezilla is a partition and disk imaging/cloning program similar to True Image® or Norton Ghost®. It helps you to do system deployment, bare metal backup and recovery. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (server edition). 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 project announced the release of Clonezilla live (2.4.6-25) on
May 31, 2016 includes minor enhancements and bug fixes.

• Linux kernel was updated to 4.5.4-1.
• Partclone was updated to 0.2.88. Some segfault issues have been fixed.
• Add support for boot parameter ocs_preload*. It can be used to fetch tarall/zip/sh files from http(s), ftp, tftp, and local URL then extract to /opt/. Thanks to Aaron Burling (aaron_burling at lkstevens wednet edu) for this idea and providing sample codes.
• Add package dos2unix.
• Add watch ocs-scan-disk for local block device in prep-ocsroot.
• Make ocs-install-grub work on Opensuse leap 42.
• Add an error routine to makeboot.bat and makeboot64.bat. Thanks to Robert Rubino.
• Add new program ocs-match-checksum to match checksum in the image and files in the block device.
• The new example file mdisks-checksum was added. It can be used to save or restore disk with checksum mechanism enabled. Especially for deploying multiple disks.
• An example gen-rec-iso was added. It could be used to create a recovery ISO directly from the machine by Clonezilla live.
• A new mechanism was added to inspect the files checksum in the partition. To use it, enable “-gmf” option in expert mode when saving an image and enable “-cmf” option when restoring image. For disk to disk clone, use “-cmf” option. Thanks to Scott Inglis (scottinglis at me com) for this request.
