I just odered a new MBWE II (1.5TB) the other day. I have not received it yet, but after reading this forum/wiki I'd like to know if anyone has tried Clonezilla to image their virgin hard drives? A lot of people mention how slow dd is to clone the disks. Unlike dd where every block of the fs is read and copied, Clonezilla only copies used filesystem blocks making the process faster and backup images smaller. Clonezilla is licensed under GPL, so there is no fee to use it. http://clonezilla.sourceforge.net
Would I be wasting my time trying to use Clonezilla?
