Looking for some program to create a file of image of the information (.img) to later be able to mount it, I have not found anything simple. In the case of Clonezilla, it requires additional space to unzip the images and then assemble them. And if I need to access the image file and the size has already exceeded the storage space of my disk?
Then I came up with the following idea to create a mountable .img with the information, maybe with some additional commands or utilities it could be improved: It could be that I could create an empty .img image, format it with fsck and I ' m not sure if it would be a good idea, but I could use rsync to synchronize all the current data to the .img image (previously mounted). What do you think of this solution? I'm sure others will like it too because I've seen that later they want to mount their images.
How should I use rsync to do this?
