Norton Ghost Equivalent Required

Recommended Posts

Open Source Disk Imaging?

 

 

What I want:

Create an image of any partition Fat 32 / Reiser FS / NTFS / EXT3 etc

Boot from and works from a couple of floppies or a single CD.

 

No installation on specific hardware required(This is one of the things that really annoys me about Ghost. you got to install the Windows version to create the DOS boot disc containing Ghost.exe

 

I've seen a few when I Googled but I'd like a reccomendation or two.

 

Sorry Mr/Mrs/Miss Moderator - move this for me please.

partimage ?  :unsure:  http://partimage.org/

 

Doesn't quite cut it, as it still doesn't write to NTFS (although it can if you make it).

I'm doing this at work so I'm prepared get someone else to pay!

 

It would do 90% of the machines thoug

 

Does partimage back up the mbr as part of the image or is it still something that has to be done seperately? If seperately it's not something I could rely on users to look after.

There seems to be a suggestion that it does - but the documentation still mentions backing it up seperately.

Sorry, I don't know. I've had installed partimage but realized that wasn't the right tool for what I needed so I gave up.

Perhaps you could have a look at the dd command and see if it can help. Looks very powerfull but the man page is crap imo. Just an idea.

Good luck anyway
