Clone dual-boot system discs


Hi to all. On all my PCs I am running Mint 18.1 alongside windows 7 0r 10. I need a program that will allow me to clone the complete discs with both OSs in one go. One windows I have been using AOMEI Partition standard but it does not work on Linux. I would like something not overly complicated though.

I use that, it's probably your best bet. If you select "Expert Mode" at the start of Clonezilla, you can choose things like compression type, NTFS partition options, etc,etc.

Best of luck!

Make sure you understand well the syntax for drive and/or partition assignments. You do not want to confuse the source and destination with whichever program you choose.

Thank you all. I will try both methods and let you know. Clonezilla I will try first as the dd procedure seems more complicated and risky for a newbie
