Fsarchiver has one very important feature - the image can be restored to a smaller partition. At my time of using Redobackup it was unable to create an image of just a partition, only image the complete hard drive - maybe this has changed now - does anyone know?
Since I just install Mint 13 and had problem with it, I wanted to make backup of my install.
For many years I used : Ghost, CloneZilla, Acronis... They are all good but I was never satisfied at 100 %.
Last week I discovered Redo Backup , and I love it !
Just download the small Iso image, burn it on a cd and boot on it to make your install image disk
Work with Linux and Windows File System.
Do and restore your backup in 5 minutes
Realy Good and simple User GUI. Can be used with mouse.
Some others tolls on it , like for partition editing, antivirus...
Ok, no incremental option, password image protect... But for now i don't care : I like it for his simple fast, multi file system ability way to do images.
By the way, I make and restore images maybe 10 times the last 5 days : it did his job fast and efficiently.
Try it and let me know.
