A few pre-sales questions

Post by Winfried » Tue Feb 28, 2012 9:49 am

Hello,

I'm looking for an alternative to Clonezilla to save/restore Windows and Linux partitions on test hosts.

Here are the requirements:
1. Can build a bootable USB key drive so as to boot and save a partition, instead of using Windows' Shadow Copy mode
2. The cloning application should provide a GUI
3. Ideally, it should be possible to save the commands used to restore a partition, so as to make it easier in test labs where we need to perfom this task often
4. It should be possible to save/fetch the partition into a file in a second partition or on a remote FTP/CIFS server
5. The cloning application should support NTFS and Linux (ext2, ext3, or ext4) filesystems

Thank you.

Are these questions about the startup version of R-Drive Image?

There are about R-Drive Image in general, to check if it meets my needs before investing time to learn about it.

Is it a good alternative to Clonezilla, ie. boots from USB to save/restore images of NTFS/Linux partitions?

Thank you.

1. Yes. A USB flash drive, CD/DVD disc, and even floppies.
2. Yes for a Windows version, a pseudo-graphic GUI for the startup version.
3. Yes, it's possible to create tasks and scripts and execute them.
4. Yes, except FTP. You may save image files on another local partition or a mounted network share.
5. Yes, it supports FAT, NTFS, and extFS.
You may read more about R-Drive Image in our article: Backup Software. Backup with Confidence. You may also install a fully functional 15-day test drive version of R-Drive Image and test it as much as you can. It's not necessary to re-install the software to get a properly registered version, entering a registration code is enough.
