    How to disk cloning?


    Hi there,

    I'm looking for an utility that allow disk/partition cloning over any kind of file systems, or at least FAT, FAT32, NTFS, ext an Linux native...

    I actually use ghost for windows, and partimage for Linux, but with partimage you have to maintain an exactly structure of your destination disk like your source disk.

    I want to clone partitions almost, including the mbr, is there any nice tool!?

    Thanks...

    Code:
    dd if=/dev/hda3 of=/dev/hda4
    The dd command should work for normal partitions, but I'm not sure about mbr cloning, though.

    "cloneing" the MBR seems a bit pointless tbh..
