Easy way to clone Luks disk to an img then to another disk?

Post by NSA_Dontspyoneme »

Is there a GUI software to do this? Clonezilla, gparted macrium reflect etc?

Luks drive----> to img file ----->> to another hard disk and laptop as a spare backup.

I do not like command line 3 pages long with many things that can go wrong. Im new at this.

Here comes the part where people choose to FORCE command line on me when I asked not to use it. Please GUI only!!!

"Is there a GUI software to do this?" Yes there is...a front end for the gddrescue package which can write files and devices...

This may be relevant if the cloned container is detachable...

While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named "manual".
