Users of CloneZilla...a couple of Q's

I updated my version of CloneZilla and it worked perfectly...or so I question is how do you know that the backup image is going to work when/if needed?

Should I try another program to double my chances of success? I backup my /home directory in addition to the image backup but what can I do to insure that the image is readable and not corrupt?

You should always test backups.. that is really the only way to know for sure if it will work properly or not.

Image the system, then restore the image to an Identical PC, or swap the hard drive in the PC for an empty one, and restore the image to the new drive to test.
