Hi and Welcome here.
Did you read the documentation? Did you try something [special] already? Where did you stuck? Do you have any particular problem?

Without knowing your environment and your needs hard to give you any hint.

The following tutorial by seems to me to be a good tutorial for using Clonezilla in order to create a good clone.

I hope that the tutorial on using Clonezilla helps you.

If there is anymore specific help that you need I suggest that you first follow pan64 instructions as more information concerning your OS and previous experience, or the problem that you encountered, is needed in order to help you further.

Hello sgarrison1755, welcome to LQ.

Clonezilla web site has a lot of how to's. I'd suggest also that you read them and ask us if you find a spot you don't quite get.

These are the common steps.

Generally you have to have three things.

One is a way to boot Clonezilla. Usb, cd/dvd or pxe are common. The version of clonezilla may be unique to your hardware and boot method.

Two is a source disk. Like that disk in your computer. (could be an array or other but some source)

Three is a target for your clone. Generally I'd think most folks make a set of files but one can use clonezilla to do a number of things. The set of files generally are placed on some new resource like a usb drive or network nas or such..

Reading each of the menus that appear carefully is always a must in linux.

There is a second method. You can also consider using a backup plan that your distro may have. It may not be a full backup like clonezilla but any backup is better than none.
