Top 15 Best Disk Cloning Software for Linux in 2020

Quote from: Mehedi Hasan, UbuntuPIT
No matter whether you’re a professional sysadmin like me or just an average Linux maniac, you must understand the importance of regularly backing up your data. Data is the de-facto driver of modern society, and securing sensitive information is of extreme importance to enterprises also. Even losing personal data can have a devastating effect on individuals. So, essential measurements must be taken to ensure the integrity and safety of your everyday data. Linux offers a variety of Disk Cloning functions for this task. Disk cloning in Linux refers to copying the contents of one storage drive to another drive or a single image file. Thanks to a continuously booming opensource community, you can quickly get your hands on a pretty good selection of disk cloning software for Linux.

You know, doing a quick read of the tute above...

The first part of the article shows one how to download GParted, and make a bootable USB stick.

I don't see any reason why a live PM USB stick wouldn't suffice. After all, it contains GParted

Soooo, skip to Boot Gparted Peppermint Live ==> Copying Partitions with Gparted  :)
