General :: Clone Or Copy Entire System To External Bootable HD?
I have a 16GB Ubuntu Webserver running on a Transcend SMART CF chip (Yes I know all the reasons not to). I want to move that entire system (OS, Files and structure) to an external bootable HD that will probably be closer to 100GB. What's the easiest way to do this and have it be plug and play. By which I mean I can then plug the drive into a new system and boot it up just as it was running on the old system.

General :: Need Windows App To Clone CF Card
I have a computer-based device used in my Ophthalmology office that uses a Compact Flash card as its primary hard drive. This device, and the CF card, are Linux based, and so the card has Linux partitions on it. I need to be able to clone this CF card, using a Windows computer, onto another CF card, to replace one that has failed in one of these devices. Neither Windows XP nor Vista is able to do anything with it.

I use Casper to clone Windows hard drives and partitions which are FAT32, NTFS, etc., but it does not recognize or work with Linux partitions. I need a simple, hopefully free or inexpensive, program that I can install on a Windows XP or Vista computer, which can clone the good Linux based CF card (which would be connected via a USB Reader, or a built-in Media reader) onto a brand-new unformatted CF card that I would buy, and similarly connected.

General :: Clone A Larger Disk To Smaller With Cp?
I need to clone a 160GB hard drive with Linux Mint 9 (not more than 10GB used) to a 30GB SSD that is partitioned carefully (aligned to cylinder boundaries) and is currently running Ubuntu (which I wish to overwrite with Linux Mint 9). The SSD has a /boot partition, / and swap. The source (160 GB) does not have a separate boot partition. Can anyone help me fill in the steps below? /dev/sdc will be the source (160GB) and /dev/sda is the target (with partitions 1,2 and swap on 5).

make a copy of /etc/fstab from the target drive before proceeding. Ready the target partitions. Can I reuse the existing destination partitions on the SSD? Ready the filesystems on each of the target partitions. /boot is ext2, / is ext4 and swap is already set up too. As I said, all contain data (Ubuntu) that I wish to overwrite. So what steps are needed here? Do I need to erase anything (files, etc.) before the copy/clone? next, use dd to copy MBR (right?) And exclude partition table:


dd if=/dev/sdc1 of=/dev/sda1 count=1 bs=446

Mount the source and destination drives:


mount -t ext4 /dev/sdc1 /mnt/source
mount -t ext2 /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot_target
mount -t ext4 /dev/sda2 /mnt/root_target

I suppose I can leave the swap partition on the target untouched. Copy the files from the source partition to the destination


cp -a /mnt/source/boot /mnt/boot_target
cp -a /mnt/source/ /mnt/root_target

then I assume I go to /mnt/root_target and delete the /boot directory, right? Change /etc/fstab to reflect the new partitions. I mount by label. Will my partition labels be intact after this? Do I have to make any changes to GRUB? Anything else?

General :: Clone HDD That Has EISA Configuration Partition
I am trying to clone a HDD which has Windows Vista installed. There are two patitions in in:
9.3GB EISA Configuration
65GB NTFS (the C: drive as windows calls it)
I am going to clone the entire hard disk with clonezilla, I am not sure what the EISA partition is and if it can be cloned(then restored) using clonezilla. I did google it, its probably some kind of a recovery partition of some sort.

General :: Full System Clone Snapshot Using Rsync?
I have automated backups running on my ubuntu box using rsnapshot (rsync) basically following this tutorial. My concern is how to restore if everything is lost. Since it does not seem that I can backup the entire drive and that I have to choose individual folders and some like proc/ cause problems.

Currently in my rsnapshot.conf I have (see below). Is there a way to just clone the entire drive? Or should I not do this? Questions:

1, Can I backup in a way such that it is a clone of the drive so that it can be swapped with the current drive?

2, If not yes to clone, If I had a total drive failure would I install a basic ubuntu and then replace all the files with the backups?

3, Anything I might not know about that I should.

General :: Software Booting - Trying Clone To Another Hard Drive As Back Up
I have a mini ITX computer that runs a software that I have been trying to clone to another hard drive as back up. When I do clone it, it is the exact same copy down to every byte. When I try to boot from the cloned hard drive, it starts booting, then displays some text:

Then is says some of the files are not found including a encryption signer key not found.

I do no know the next step I need to take. Is this becasue it is running off a different hard drive? I do not understand a bzImage too well, but does it have anything to do with that file?
