    Default Playing it safe with v8 on the way

    Major upgrades make me nervous. With version 8 about to be pushed out in the not-too-distant future, I'd really really like to have a disk image of my working-perfectly version 7.4 Untangle installation.

    A search of these forums turned up this thread where two live imaging programs were suggested.

    It looks like clonezilla has the situation covered, but I'm just wondering if any of you massively experienced folks have become aware of an even better way to do this within the year since this thread was posted.

    My intent is to plug in a USB-HDD and make an image, so it would be very nice if USB devices are supported in the clone program, as Clonezilla appears to do.

    Has anyone actually done a clone and restore with this?

    Clonezilla works well, it's the best option. You can use it for backup all you want. You just can't do installs with it.

    I assume that's for making images while the system is operational, right? That's not necessary in my situation - shutting down for 10 minutes is no big deal. Thank you for the suggestion though; perhaps someone else will benefit from it.

    Hahaha! Yes, I understood that, but thanks for the clarification anyway. I didn't get the "clonation is with of line disks" part. I assumed that the Acronis product is intended for making images of disks that are in active use. Since I can shut down the system any time I want, an offline image is easy, and probably a lot faster and less expensive, to make. So it looks like Clonezilla is the best option.

    Thanks to all.

    Just fired off the update from 7.4.1 to 8, took less than 10 minutes from starting the dl till logging in after the reboot.

    Looks Great!
