On the DVD

64-bit

Clonezilla Live is a combination of Clonezilla and Debian Live. However, unlike most distributions, Clonezilla Live is not a tool for everyday computers, but rather a distribution to image or clone filesystems working from an external drive.

Like Clonezilla itself, this Live version supports a wide variety of filesystems and hardware. Although Clonezilla can be run from a hard drive, it is usually more convenient as a Live device from which to boot a computer. To do so, at startup you will have set your machine to boot from it. At the bootloader, you have several hardware and software options, including resolution, speech synthesis, and specifying the local operating system. These options are detailed on the project home page (https://clonezilla.org/clonezilla-usage/general-live-use.php). Once Clonezilla Live is up and running, you can refer to https://clonezilla.org/clonezilla-live-doc.php for examples of how to restore a disk image, clone a disk, restore to multiple disks, and other operations. A particularly useful task is to create a DVD or flash drive recovery disk for emergencies. Most of the time, you will not need Clonezilla Live, but you never know when a recent version will come in handy for maintenance and troubleshooting.
