Toptech Disaster Recovery
Backups are extremely important. It is the only safeguard of your data in the event of fire, theft, malware, data corruption, etc.
Toptech provides several tools to protect your data. However, the only way to capture the Operating System is to use software that is designed to image entire disks. Toptech has tested and recommends a free (GPL) imaging software product named “Clonezilla” to create and restore system (bare-metal) backups.
Clonezilla is a partition and disk imaging/cloning program similar to True Image® or Norton Ghost®. It helps you to do bare metal backup and recovery. Two types of Clonezilla are available, Clonezilla live and Clonezilla SE (server edition). Clonezilla live is suitable for single machine backup and restore and is the application that Toptech recommends.
