Using Clonezilla with FreeNAS to Backup a Hard Disk

August 19th, 2010

The MyLinuxRamblings blog has posted another great FreeNAS related post, this time about using Clonezilla with FreeNAS.

Clonezilla is a free software disaster recovery and disk cloning application. Because it runs from a Live CD (ISO image obtainable from http://tinyurl.com/c2myn8) and will read most hard disk formats including NTFS, Clonezilla is OS agnostic. It can backup at partition level to another hard disk or to a USB hard disk. It can also clone to FreeNAS.

The tutorial covers booting the Clonezilla Live CD and using it to backup a hard disk to FreeNAS (via Windows Networking / Samba).
