Disk & Partition Cloning Tools

As I recently switched drives over in my laptop here's some links to disk & partition cloning tools I found handy:

  • Partclone - Linux command line tool for imaging/cloning a partition. I used this to backup the Dell recovery partition on my original drive as I went for a fresh install on the new drive.
  • Clonezilla - Co-worker used this to migrate his existing Dell recovery & Windows partitions over to a new drive as is. Comes as a Live CD ISO image and has an enterprise offering too. Very similar to Norton Ghost. Uses Partclone under the hood.
  • EaseUS Partition Manager - Recommended by a co-worker, has a free version for home users.
