It's decent for offline backups. Kind of shit for NTFS disks though. It works but not much more.

why shit for ntfs?

It managed to mangle the filesystem several times in a row when I used compression. The checksums didn't check out that it generated. Using no compression I might as well just use dd and 7zip or something for ntfs.

using the default gzip compression it uses?

isn't that using compression?

With the ntfs options you actually read the filesystem which it don't do by default. For ntfs disks it just create a 1:1 exact copy. The ntfs option appears to have been experimental in clonezilla for the past decade or so. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Might as well do a slow 1:1 copy instead of failing.

you're saying you got errors while restoring?

>>52512666
The checksums it created before imaging the disk don't check out when it verifies the image. It's random if it will pass or fail that point when cloning with ntfs option. It has happened on several computers and disks.

And no I wont try blah blah or file a bug report.

what is the dd command you guys would use to backup a single hard disk?

dd if=/dev/sdX conv=sync,noerror bs=64K | gzip -c > /path/to/backup.img.gz
