Clonezilla 2.5.2-17
Clonezilla is a partition and disk imaging/cloning program similar to True Image® or Norton Ghost®. It helps you to do system deployment, bare metal backup and recovery. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (server edition). Clonezilla live is suitable for single machine backup and restore. While Clonezilla SE is for massive deployment, it can clone many (40 plus!) computers simultaneously. Clonezilla saves and restores only used blocks in the harddisk. This increases the clone efficiency. With some high-end hardware in a 42-node cluster, a multicast restoring at rate 8 GB/min was reported.

Many File systems are supported: (1) ext2, ext3, ext4, reiserfs, reiser4, xfs, jfs, btrfs and f2fs of GNU/Linux, (2) FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS of MS Windows, (3) HFS+ of Mac OS, (4) UFS of FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD, (5) minix of Minix, and (6) VMFS3 and VMFS5 of VMWare ESX. Therefore you can clone GNU/Linux, MS windows, Intel-based Mac OS, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, Minix, VMWare ESX and Chrome OS/Chromium OS, no matter it's 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x86-64) OS. For these file systems, only used blocks in partition are saved and restored. For unsupported file system, sector-to-sector copy is done by dd in Clonezilla.
LVM2 (LVM version 1 is not) under GNU/Linux is supported.
Boot loader, including grub (version 1 and version 2) and syslinux, could be reinstalled.
Both MBR and GPT partition formats of hard drive are supported. Clonezilla live also can be booted on a BIOS or uEFI machine.
Unattended mode is supported. Almost all steps can be done via commands and options. You can also use a lot of boot parameters to customize your own imaging and cloning.
One image restoring to multiple local devices is supported.
Image could be encrypted. This is done with ecryptfs, a POSIX-compliant enterprise cryptographic stacked filesystem.
Multicast is supported in Clonezilla SE, which is suitable for massively clone. You can also remotely use it to save or restore a bunch of computers if PXE and Wake-on-LAN are supported in your clients.
The image file can be on local disk, ssh server, samba server, NFS server or WebDAV server.
AES-256 encryption could be used to secures data access, storage and transfer.
Based on Partclone (default), Partimage (optional), ntfsclone (optional), or dd to image or clone a partition. However, Clonezilla, containing some other programs, can save and restore not only partitions, but also a whole disk.
By using another free software drbl-winroll, which is also developed by us, the hostname, group, and SID of cloned MS windows machine can be automatically changed.

Minimum System Requirements for Clonezilla live:

X86 or x86-64 processor
196 MB of system memory (RAM)
Boot device, e.g. CD/DVD Drive, USB port, PXE, or hard drive


The destination partition must be equal or larger than the source one.
Differential/incremental backup is not implemented yet.
Online imaging/cloning is not implemented yet. The partition to be imaged or cloned has to be unmounted.
Due to the image format limitation, the image can not be explored or mounted. You can _NOT_ recovery single file from the image. However, you still have workaround to make it, read this.
Recovery Clonezilla live with multiple CDs or DVDs is not implemented yet. Now all the files have to be in one CD or DVD if you choose to create the recovery iso file.


Clonezilla itself is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL) Version 2. However, to run Clonezilla, a lot of free and open source software, e.g. the Linux kernel, a mininal GNU/Linux OS, are required.

This release of Clonezilla live (2.5.2-17) includes major enhancements and bug fixes.

The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2017/Jul/26).
Linux kernel was updated to 4.11.6-1.
Partclone was updated to 0.2.91.
Language file de_DE, es_ES, fr_FR, hu_HU, it_IT, ja_JP, sk_SK, and tr_TR were updated. Thanks to Michael Vinzenz, Juan Ramón Martínez, Jean-Francois Nifenecker, Greg Marki, Gianfranco Gentili, Akira Yoshiyama, Ondrej Dzivy Balucha, and Volkan Gezer.
Add SMB version selection when mounting CIFS. Thanks to Eric Nichols for asking this.
Add packages brltty and espeakup. Thanks to Nick Gawronski for this suggestion.
Add packages sshpass and keychain.
A lite server was added in Clonezilla live. It can be used as Clonezilla server, with limited features, but works for most of the scenarios. Therefore re-arrange the main menu of Clonezilla live as: "device-image", "device-device", "remote-source", "remote-dest", "lite-server", "lite-client". Thanks to Aaron Burling for providing suggestions.
Boot parameter "ocs_litesrv_mode" was added for lite server presetting: use-existing-dhcpd, start-new-dhcpd, auto-detect, no-dhcpd. Thanks to Aaron Burling for providing suggestions.


Detect if terminal supports color output before using color outputs in the terminal. Thanks to TF for asking this. Ref:
When creating partition table on a disk, Clonezilla should wait for partition name with extra p, like nvme0n1p1, to take effect. Thanks Bruno Vila Vilariño for reporting this issue.
Failed to use the serial number with space. Thanks to Matt Broadstone for providing the patch. Ref:
Package whiptail was updated which improves handling of long strings in menu. Ref:
