Clonezilla is a free software tool for cloning hard disk drives. With this program you safeguard all of the disks’ information by creating backup copies.
Has it ever happened to you that you’ve lost all of your hard drive’s data because you didn’t have a backup copy? Or noticed that a hard drive wasn’t working correctly? Before arriving at the moment of disaster you can make security Clonezilla copies to store all of your data on another disk.
With Clonezilla you’ll recover everything you’ve stored and copied from those disks. It’s as easy as downloading the ISO liveCD image from Clonezilla’s website, copying it into a CD and starting up the hard drive with this disk.
The program will guide you through the steps to be followed: choosing the language, the keyboard map and starting Clonezilla. Choose the original disks and those that will serve as copies carefully. After a few warning ads regarding security, the process of cloning one disk to another will begin.
The size of the disks, the information they contain and the hard drive’s capacity are factors that will influence the time that Clonezilla will take to carry out the security copy.
