Submission + - Clonezilla awarded Project of the month at

Clonezilla is a partition or disk clone tool similar to Norton Ghost. It saves and restores only the used blocks in the hard drive. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (Server Edition). The filesystem supported by Clonezilla are: ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, xfs, jfs of GNU/Linux, FAT, NTFS of MS Windows, and HFS+ of Mac OS. Therefore you can clone GNU/Linux, MS windows and Intel-based Mac OS whether they be 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x86-64) OS. For these file systems, only the used blocks in the partition are saved and restored. For unsupported file systems, a sector-to-sector copy is done by dd in Clonezilla.
