Software Update: Clonezilla Live 2.8.0-27

Spread the love

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 with Clonezilla server and SE up to 40 computers can be imaged simultaneously. With version number 2.8.0-27 a new stable release of Clonezilla has been released and the changelog of that version looks like this:
