Clonezilla Ghost Like Linux Partition or Disk Clone Software

You can easily clone single hard disk or partition using netcat and your own network. However, software such as Clonezilla offers a partition or disk clone software similar to Ghost. It saves and restores only used blocks in hard drive.

Clonezilla Ghost Like Linux Software

Norton Ghost is popular proprietary commercial software. It is slow and takes lots of time to clone system. There is also Symantec Ghost Corporate Edition with multicasting and fast cloning system.

However, Clonezilla is a free, open source, multitasking and multi operating system software. With DRBL (Diskless Remote Boot in Linux [DRBL] provides a diskless or systemless environment for client machines) and network boot enabled client computers, the only thing you have to prepare is a Clonezilla server. The best thing is ~ you do not even have to prepare a bootable CD or floppy with Partition Image for every client computer.
