AYYMD IS FINISHED & BANKRUPT
AYYMDPOORFAGS CONFIRMED ON SUICIDE WATCH
I want to clone my Windows10 partition as a backup. I have everything setup as I want it and don't want to go through the few days it would take to reinstall programs and updates.
I have a 3TB external drive that I can put it on so storage really isn't an issue.
The issues I'm thinking that might make this more than a simple run is that A) I'm dual-booting Win10 and Ubuntu on the host machine. B) The external drive is also used for general backup of files. I'm sure I will need to repartition the external to keep these things separate.
One solution I read about was to dd Windows partitions to identically sized partitions on the storage drive. Then of course there's Clonezilla but from what I've read, trying to do it that way could lead to issues. Unfortunately, there's really not much out there that details how to do this. Most guides out there deal with whole disks, not multiple partitions and making a bootable clone (don't need it).
Any ideas or tips?

sounds like you want to make a backup which is used like a replacement for an installation disc
it's actually not that hard to make a custom install disc based on your current setup
all it takes is;
1. run "sysprep /generalize" on your system
2. boot into a PE environment (the environment you get when booting off of a windows install disc
3. run imagex to capture your installation into a .wim image file
4. substitute the "install.wim" file in the original windows install disc with your new .wim file (re/named to "install.wim")
now you will have an install disc which installs windows as you currently have it, programs, users, documents and all
this is the same process OEMs and businesses use to customize windows for use on multiple machines, without having to do a fresh install and setup on each individual machine
>A) I'm dual-booting Win10 and Ubuntu on the host machine.

The "Partition -> Image" option will resolve both of your concerns. Just use the simplified mode and use the defaults.
Partition -> Image simply copies the target filesystem, without the unused space. Optionally compressing and encrypting it. It will generate a directory on the output filesystem (your 3TB drive) containing the image, split into sections, with checksum files.
Have you even booted clonezilla before? It's not that scary.
I hadn't even considered this. I will keep this in mind. Thank you.
I haven't really gotten around to it yet to check the options more thoroughly. I know that it can grab just the used space and make an image, but one of my concerns was if there will be an issue during recovery to a larger partition. I probably misunderstood, but I thought I read that the image will have a partition just that size and I would have to merge the freespace to the image partition. Say, image=100GB. Partition I want to put it on is 300GB. Image takes up 100GB, but 200GB is now a second partition that needs to be merged with the image's 100GB. Again, I probably have it all wrong.
Another concern is the fact that WIndows is two partitions, System and Installed. I have to copy the System partition as well, correct?

Hey /g/ents. on /b/ was posted this

Hi /g/ EUROfag here
I need a small tracking device with it's own power supply or without any. Something that can send me it's location at any given time and I can monitor it on my phone or computer. And of course it must be small enough to be hidden in a car or in my case in a van.
I need it 'cause I suspect one of my workers is using firm's van and time for his own personnal activities.
Do you know of any good items or even suppliers in Europe with this kind of gagets?
So have to learn Ionic 2 for the job (currently back end php dev).
However I can't seem to find a suitable IDE for Ionic with proper Angular and Typescript support with adequate VIM support.
Tried Visual Studio Code, but it's VIM integration sucks ass.
Currently on Netbeans, but can't find proper plugins.
So what are you using for Ionic/Angular ect with VIM support?
So what exactly do normies like on social media? How did Cuckerberg hit the jackpot with facebook? Was it luck? Or did he know what people wanted?
What does anybody want in social media anyway?
>actually filled with not documents but configs for software
Yeah but seriously this shit pisses me off that my documents get flooded with configuration files which never get cleaned when the program gets uninstalled.
I wish the standard was using appdata instead for all that configuring or something similar. I'd like to have "my documents" back.
