In the article before about how quickly install windows , we've talked about how to use norton ghost backup windows.
As we know, norton ghost is a commercial software that requires us to buy a license. Despite the fact that the Internet is widely available in versions that are on-crack or even we can easily find the serial number on various websites which are providing the serial number, but instead we get the full version, just the computer that eventually we even known virus .
As an alternative to norton ghost who paid it, we could use a pretty powerful freeware that Clonezilla.
What are the advantages of open source software is compared to other cloning software?
According to his official website, clonezilla.org:
Clonezilla is an open source clone system (OCS). Clonezilla, based on DRBL, Partition Image, ntfsclone, partclone, and udpcast, Allows you to do 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.
By using this software, we can perform backup and recovery partition or hard disk easily. Clonezilla are available in 2 versions: Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (Server Edition).
Clonezilla live can be used to make the process of partition or hard disk cloning and backup and restore partitions or hard drive on a standalone pc. While Clonezilla SE can be used to perform clonning partition or hard drive on a computer network. Even according to their experience, the software is able to perform the cloning process they will simultaneously be carried out simultaneously on a network with 41 computers and only takes 10 minutes to do a clone of 5.6 GBytes system image. Great is not it?!
