Clonezilla live clone system with multi-restore
Version 1.2.11-23 of the Clonezilla live CD has been released with an updated software collection. Based on the unstable branch of Debian (known as "Sid") from 28 November, this update to the open source clone system for hard disk partitioning and duplicating includes the 3.1.1-1 Linux kernel, version 0.2.38 of the Partclone partition image utility and Gdisk 0.8.1
The release introduces a new multi-restore function, which allows an image to be restored to several disks at the same time. The developers say that this option is especially useful for cloning multiple USB flash drives using a single system. There have also been some changes to the user interface: the beginner mode now offers the option of checking the source partition file system using fsck, and options for restoring partitions and drives are now only displayed when Clonezilla finds an appropriate image.
A full list of changes and notes on upgrading can be found in the official release announcement and in the change log. Clonezilla live 12.11-23 is available to download from the project's site. Hosted on SourceForge, Clonezilla is licensed under the GPLv2.
