Software Update: Clonezilla 2.7.0-10

Clonezilla is an open source program for creating disk images. Among other things, it is possible to make backups of partitions or of the entire hard disk, or a copy of a hard disk: a so-called clone. Clonezilla is therefore an open source variant of Macrium Reflect and Acronis True Image. The whole thing is based on a Debian distribution and it uses DRBL, Partclone and udpcast. Clonezilla live is intended for standalone computers, while Clonezilla server and SE up to 40 computers can be imaged simultaneously. With version number 2.7.0-10 a new stable release of Clonezilla has been released and the changelog of the last few versions looks like this:

Clonezilla live 2.7.0-10

  • The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2020/Nov/02).
  • Add scsitools, blktool, safecopy and gpart to clonezilla live.

Clonezilla live 2.7.0-9

  • The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2020/Oct/29).
  • Partclone was updated to 0.3.17 which update the codes about BTRFS to version 5.4.
  • Bug fixed: avoid creating VG more than once. VG might exist in more than one PV. If so, we only have to create it once. Ref: more info
  • Bug fixed: cnvt-ocs-dev now can process the image repository path with whitespace. more info
  • Save OS-related info in the image dir as the file name Info-OS-prober.txt more info

Clonezilla live 2.7.0-5

Clonezilla live 2.7.0-3

  • The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Debian Sid repository (as of 2020/Oct/16).
  • Implement a better mechanism to run ocs-onthefly: Now ocs-onthefly mainly uses ocs-sr to save the pseudo image, and let partclone do the device to device clone. This is similar to that of Clonezilla lite server. Due to this improvement, some major changes for ocs-othefly in order to sync with that of ocs-sr:
  • These options have been changed to totally different meanings: -d|–destination|–target was -t|–target -po|–port was -p|–port –net-filter was -i|- -filter -p|-pa|–postaction was -pa|–postaction -u|–use-nuttcp was -u|–use-netcat
  • New options: -t|–no-restore-mbr -t1|–restore-raw-mbr -t2|–no-restore-ebr
  • By default, the network cloning is changed to use zstd to compress the data instead of gzip.
  • ocs-sr’s option -f|–from-part-in-img is changed as -f|–from-part since it now supports both from an image and a device.
  • ocs-update-initrd: Remove useless prompt.
  • cnvt-ocs-dev: dev-fs.list should be converted, too. Add a tag file device_name_converted.info in the converted image.
  • For drbl-ocs.conf:Remove: PARTCLONE_RESTORE_ONTHEFLY_OPT_INIT
    Add:
    ONTHEFLY_NET_PIPE=”nuttcp” NC_PORT_DEFAULT=”9000″
    PARTCLONE_LOG=”/var/log/partclone.log”
  • If a disk has not any partition, it can not be the source for ocs-onthefly. It will just quit to avoid confusion.
  • Add “–rsyncable” for zstd saving.
  • Since zstdmt is equivalent to zstd -T0, remove “-T${cpu_no}” in extra_zstdmt_opt.
  • Use -np|–net-pipe PROGRAM instead of -u|–use-netcat in ocs-onthefly so that it’s easier to switch, and it can be selected in the expert mode.
