Cloning Linux

With the announcement of Max OSX 11 (XI?), looking to phase out the main MacBook Pro. One of the best parts about running OSX has been using Carbon Copy Cloner to generate bootable backups.

Now that we’ll be going 100% Ubuntu, it’s time to find a replacement for CCC. This is currently where my research stops.

I’m guessing I’ll start with experimenting with rsync and if that doesn’t work well, I’ll probably look at Clonezilla next. I’ve been spoiled with CCC in that the cloning can happen with OSX up and running, as opposed to having to boot a CD or USB drive with a dedicated program. We’ll see where the adventure takes me.
