The Free and Open Source Software for Disk Imaging and Cloning

This release of Clonezilla live (20200428-focal) includes major enhancements and bug fixes.

ENHANCEMENTS and CHANGES from 20200302-eoan

  • The underlying GNU/Linux operating system was upgraded. This release is based on the Ubuntu Focal (20.04) repository (as of 2020/Apr/28).
  • Linux kernel was updated to 5.4.0-26.30.
  • Neglect the line "last-lba:..." for the GPT partition table. This allows something like: 64 GB disk with a 20 GB NTFS partition, disk clone to >= 20 GB disk. This is harmless when same sizes of disk cloning or smaller to larger case. The option -icds is required when larger disk is cloned/restored to smaller one, no need to use -k1 in this case. Thanks to panreyes for this idea. Ref:
  • Package pax was included.
  • Add scdaemon clonezilla live. Thanks to nurupo for suggesting this.
  • Package ufsutils was removed since it's not available in Debian Sid repository.
  • Package pxz was removed since it's replaced by pixz in Clonezilla.
  • Add batch mode, and instead of countdown, pause it when rc is not 0 for ocs-run-boot-param.
  • Add a new program ocs-live-swap-kernel which can be used to swap Linux kernel and modules in clonezilla live.
  • Add -z9p in the TUI menu of beginner mode, and now pzstd is replaced by zstdmt when the option -z9p is chosen. Thanks to Lord65 for this suggestion. Ref:
