I was thinking of performing a Clonezilla backup and was wondering what backup mode to choose. Generally speaking, Clonezilla offers the following backup options:
- savedisk: Save a full disk image
- saveparts: Save images of specific partitions
Correspondingly there are two restore modes:
- restoredisk: Restores full disk image
- restoreparts: Restores partition images
What I am looking for is a hybrid of these two options. I would like to be able to both restore specific partitions and restore my full hard drive in case of a total failure. Does Clonezilla support this restoration pathway out of the box?
So far I haven't been able to find any official documentation regarding this. The only reference I did find was a mailing list discussion from 2010 which pointed to imgconvert, a custom script which can supposedly convert disk images to partition images. Unfortuantely I have no idea if this script still works. After all it's 5 years old.
That's why I wanted to ask here if anyone had any experience with this use case of Clonezilla and could vouch for this solution (or a different one, for that matter).
