Re: Is there any Acronis like software to backup?
I have been using Mondo. The support community is quite good, although I have to admit that I went throgh a bad spell where it did not work. Currently I backup to a USB drive as a series of ISO images which I can then burn at leisure. But direct burns to RW media do not seem to work. It used to work and one of the updates from Ubuntu seem to stop it working. The problem seems to be Distro related as Mandriva, red Hat, etc., users seem to get it working with less problems. Currently my test bed is using 8.04 LTS
I did try others but a few years ago so I cannot make any real comments about later versions of Clonezilla.
If you do wish try Mondo do not use the versions on the Ubuntu site/repository, they are out of date and version labelling means that the update manager always updates to Ubuntu versions, not the later versions available on the Mondorescue.org site. There is a comment on the Mondo website, as how to correct this problem.
