clonezilla image creating-restoring quick guide

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I created this quick guide for creating backup/image with clonezilla for someone so If anyone needs please fell free to use it.
I use clonezilla-live-1.2.12-37-amd64 so If you use some other version it might have some different looking options or something.

CREATING IMAGE/BACKUP:

1. Boot from created boot-CD

follow the pics:

th_backup_07_zps630b00a6.jpg

th_backup_08_zps59145110.jpg

2. pick the depository drive. in my case (my brother's PC) it's 250gb HDD:

3. pick the folder/directory where you want to save the image:
th_backup_10_zps9b36a33a.jpg

follow the pics:
th_backup_11_zps70fb1ea5.jpg

th_backup_12_zps0ce18cac.jpg

4. pick "savedisk". I presume it's the same If you just want to save partition, in which case just pick "savepart":
th_backup_13_zps566143f1.jpg

5. input the name of the folder to save it to (I just leave default):
th_backup_14_zps0b85b63d.jpg

6. pick/mark the disk/part you are about to save to image:
th_backup_15_zps7c43826b.jpg

7. pick q2 (dafault) if you use normal non encrypted system.
(note: If you use truecrypt system or similar, use q1 (only dd). In case of q1 option the image is not compressed and you need same amount of space on the
depository drive as the source drive)
th_backup_16_zpsc0bd0e83.jpg

8. pick -nogui option, others default. don't ask me why, I've always been using it like this :-)
th_backup_17_zps1ed7b258.jpg

9. pick -zip option for compression (dafault). or you can play with picking the option that gives you the smallest image possible.
(note: If you use truecrypt system or similar use -z0 (no compression) option cos the image can't be compressed when encryption is used cos you are making sector-to-sector copy of the drive and the imaging software can't see the data behind encryption)

10. pick 1 000 000 000 here so you don't get split files or just leave it on default (2000):

follow the pics:

th_backup_22_zps57d0b258.jpg

th_backup_23_zps3ba1db65.jpg

th_backup_24_zpsed0d551c.jpg

11. when done:
th_backup_25_zps32afe5c4.jpg

pick 1 to restart or 0 to power off the computer
th_backup_26_zpsea731362.jpg

the CD/DVD tray opens, remove the disk and press enter
th_backup_27_zps6bccf7f5.jpg

DONE :-)

I'll upload the restore procedure in a minute....

done :-).
I'm sorry I had to use photobucket but I was unable to upload pics to overclock.net.
something is broken on my side. probably something to do with using old firefox v3.6.x and various security add-ons like noscript etc.
If you need any clarifications, ask.

cheers.

" probably something to do with using old firefox v3.6.x "
...
I'm on FF22.0... would 3.6 be safer or it's only the last FF for Mac?

I'm on Win7 but I use v3.6.x cos I hate the new FF look :-(.
Also I hear about problems with new FFs all the time.
I don't think it's safer to use old FF, and that's what most people will tell you so If you don't mind the changes/look use the newer FFs.
cheers.
