Clonezilla Live 2.2.3-30, a Linux distribution based on DRBL, Partclone, and udpcast that allows users to do bare metal backup and recovery, is available for download and testing.
The Clonezilla team has just a released a new development build for this Linux distribution. It seems that the devs had a little vacation, because it's been quite a while since the previous release. The new version has arrived, but it's rather slim and brings very few changes, with the exception of a Linux kernel update.
“The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2014/Aug/05),” reads the official announcement.
According to the changelog, the Linux kernel is now at version 3.14.13-2 (one of the latest available) and it looks like we're going to be using this release for a while longer, despite the fact that there are a couple of newer kernel branches available.
Clonezilla Live is a Linux distribution that does only one thing: bare metal backup and recovery. It's very similar to other, older pieces of cloning software, such as True Image or Norton Ghost.
Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
