Where can I find a detailed explanation of the "disk image" function found in ubuntu 12.04 system tools > disks > create disk image found by clicking the gear symbol at the top right?
I have an old, but still kicking laptop - thinkpad t61. I've ordered a new SSD to make my old trusty a little bit faster. I have Fedora installed there for some years now and I really don't want to make a fresh install now. So I was thinking can I use palimpsest eg Disks to migrate my existing installation to SSD.
We have installed and customized a F18 system, and it's working great... Now I'd like to take a disk image of it (we use Clonezilla) and then use that image to blow onto other disks we'll use in other systems.
I have a win7 laptop that I'd like to create an image of the hard disk to be able to restore later, or restore to an identical hard disk as part of a charity project I'm involved with that includes about 50 other identical laptops.
I'm aware I can use dd to just dump the disk image to a file then restore using dd back to the slave disk.
Under windows system I'm used to create an image of HD with driveImageXML.
What's the best approach to have an Image of the hard-drive containing the OS, with Ubuntu Server?
I'd like to have a snapshot of the current configuration so If ever happens that the primary disk will fail I could simply restore this image on a new HD, unplug the broken one, plug the newly created.
I just got a new Verizon GS3, and would like to do the equivalent of creating a "disk image" of my phone. This feature has saved me numerous times on my PC, and I had used Sprite backup on my prior WM6.0 system to restore the phone from a ROM and then reload all my settings, folders, etc.
