which live distro


Hi all,
I am looking for a live distro to help me clone my current laptop hard disk to a new ssd disk. The new ssd disk is a tiny bit smaller (20GB) but is of course enough for cloning all data in.
Any suggestions?

Clonezilla Live is a good option.

Hi.

Don't forget you can install apps(\update &c) if needed in a live session...

I like: https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/u...y-live-builds/

not that you'd need to install dd https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/disk_cloning
Code:
dd if=/dev/sdX of=/dev/sdY bs=64K conv=noerror,sync status=progress
have fun!

Rsync may be a better choice for a large amount of data (I like it,) big page: https://www.computerhope.com/unix/rsync.htm

I like GPARTED

Gparted has many advantages, which I prefer to other distros.

Many SSD companies offer a limited version of a commercial and it will boot.
