I booted the Clonezilla live image from a USB stick and am currently in the proces of cloning my internal HDD from it.
If this was a normal Debian live USB, taking out the USB stick during operation would cause the system to crash.
But I think perhaps the Clonezilla live system runs entirely from RAM? So, could I just withdraw it from the USB port, while the program is running? It would make sense if they designed it like that, as some people have a limited number of USB ports and may need them for the devices they are cloning from or to.
I am asking because the cloning is taking a while and I want to use the USB stick for something else while I wait.
I have tried searching the internet for this, but I could not find an answer. Also, I do not want to just try as an experiment, as I do not want to risk having to restart the cloning and/or corrupting any of the media involved.
