Which one is better lol
I never used one before. I assume you install it on a thumbdrive, make the backup, but where does the backup go. Is the thumbdrive supposed to have enough space on it
I startes with clonezilla, and used it for a long time. But in last 4-5 years I use only fsarchiver. Clonezilla is for mission-critical backups. Fsarchiver is wa-a-y more flexible, perfect for everyday dackups.
Yes, both must be started from any media, external to the partition being backed up. From LiveCD, LiveDVD, LiveUSB, from another Linux on the same computer but installed and running from other partition(s).
I’ve run clonezilla from LiveUSB. The standard clonezilla doesn’t provide a way to be placed on LiveUSB, it should be burned onto LiveCD/DVD only. But I’ve put it on LiveUSB nevertheless. Everything is possible with Linnux :) .
But fsarchiver is the most used tool here. It is included in every Linux distro, so I install it everywhere. Then, when I want to backup Linuxes A, B, C, D I just boot into Linux X, on the same computer, and backup A, B, C, D from X.
I always backup to external (USB) disks. There’s no sense to do it on the computer’s disks - if the computer gets broken, how to access backups on its disks?
