How to clone USB Drive

Hi all!

I have this situation:

I have USB Drive with:

* A CDFS (CD-ROM Partition/read-only)
* A FAT32 partition (writable)

I need to clone the USB, I mean, with the partitions and the content of them.

I need to do this multiple times.

Do you know a software or technic to do this?

Thank you in advance!

You can clone using clonezilla-live
As far as multiple times, meaning in 1 session not sure but you can however repeat the process with multiple drives.

'dd' would work as long as the new drives are exactly the same size or bigger.
