Clonezilla Live is a free and easy-to-use program that allows you to make a copy of your entire hard drive and burn it to disk. It creates a one-to-one map of your PC's hard drive, allowing you to capture your computer at a specific moment when it is virus-free. You can also choose to clone individual partitions. The program is based on Linux and works with most CD burning hardware.
To use Clonezilla Live, you need to burn the ISO image file to a CD and tweak the BIOS boot options of your PC's CD drive. Once you have the CD, you can copy your hard drive to a full disk or individual partitions. The program only clones the sections of your hard drive that have been used, saving space and making the process faster.
If you experience a hard drive failure, you can perform a complete system restore using the disk or an external hard drive. You can also transfer the image to different computers. However, Clonezilla Live does have limited options compared to paid disk imaging programs, and its interface is plain.
Overall, Clonezilla Live is a reliable and easy-to-use disk imaging tool for PCs.
