Spread the love

Version 2.4 of Rescuezilla has been released. This program can be used to create an image backup of a partition or hard disk. It can also be used to clone a hard drive, or view the contents of an image and copy individual files from it. Rescuezilla is fully compatible with Clonezilla and can handle virtual images such as VirtualBox, VMware, Hyper-V and QEMU. It can also resize partitions and recover accidentally deleted files. The release notes for this release can be found below.

Release notes

  • Replaces Ubuntu 21.10 (Impish) build with build based on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy) for best support of new hardware
  • Builds latest version of partclone from source code v0.3.20, instead of OS package (#335)
    • This fixes “unsupported feature” error for users of compressed BTRFS filesystems (such as Fedora Workstation 33 and newer)
  • Removed old partclone v0.2.43 used to maximize legacy Redo Backup compatibility (modern partclone still provides good backwards compatibility)
  • Fixed execution of Clonezilla EFI NVRAM script to better correctly handle reboot on EFI systems (#348)
  • Switched Firefox to using the Mozilla Team PPA repository, because new “snap” packaging is incompatible with Rescuezilla’s build scripts
  • Added ability to compress images using bzip2 algorithm (#290)
  • Moved post-completion action to in-progress page (#316)
    • This has caused at least 1 user an issue during cloning, which I’m yet unable to reproduce: #337
  • Added ability to set custom SSH port (#336)
  • Many existing translations updated, but also added:
    • Arabic/ﺎﻠﻋﺮﺒﻳﺓ (ar-EG)
    • Catalan/Català (ca-ES) (Translation in progress)
    • Czech/Ceština (cs-CZ) (Translation in progress)
    • Hungarian/Magyar (hu-HU) Translation in progress)
    • Slovak/Slovenčina (sk-SK) (Translation in progress)

Known Potential Bug: When cloning, the moved auto-restart/auto-shutdown drop-down (#337) may cause an issue. On my test environment, auto-restart on “clone” mode (and “restore” mode) works fine. Please let me know if you can reproduce this.
