Disk Image of NT4 system using clonezilla


Hi,

we have a Win NT4 system used for an important application
used at two places. At one place it has gone bad. I want to create an image from good system and restore it at the second location. Is it possible to do this using "clonwzilla live cd" ?

Please tell me:
Does it harm the good system?

Can I save the created image to an USB drive?

A backup/recovery tool that damages the system it's backing up, would be rather useless, wouldn't it? No, it will not damage the system.

Read the documentation on Clonezilla, but yes.

Also, you do realize that this is LINUXQuestions, right? Not really the place to ask about Windows NT....

Clonezilla should not harm the good machine.

I think I'd use ntbackup and restore instead.

thanks for your reply TB0ne. I know it is LINUXQuestions, since clonezilla is a Linux based program I thought it is ok to ask question here. Am I wrong?

thanks jefro, will see it as well.
