As an alternative in free software for Norton Ghost, or DriveImage/PartitionMagic (PowerQuest before, Norton nowadays), we have SysRescCD.
It is a CD to rescue the systemsfrom a big disease.
We are interested in the following features:
- Backup network system (LAN) to create images from all the system periodically. Partimaged.
- Partition managed partitions: create, delete, resize,… Gparted
We are going to develop the use of this tool in various articles. How to create a simple LAN backup for a little server or home PC. Not only used for linux partitions (ext3), for other systems as NTFS or FAT too.
We download an ISO image which will be burn in a CD.
