Clonezilla

Clonezilla

Clonezilla is a console based partition or disk clone software similar to Symantec Ghost Corporate. It saves and restores only used blocks on the hard drive.

Clonezilla is based on DRBL, Partimage, ntfsclone, and udpcast. It allows users to do 'bare metal' backup and recovery. Bare metal recovery is the process of rebuilding a computer after a catastrophic failure.

Two versions of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla server edition. Clonezilla live is suitable for single machine backup and restore, whereas Clonezilla server edition is designed for massive deployment, as it can clone many (40 plus!) computers simultaneously. For example, you can clone a 5 GB system to 40 clients in about 10 minutes.
