and this was on a new drive?Success story.
the files mentioned above would definitely give you trouble if that were the case.
i tried using foxclone a while back and ran into issues. why not use gnome disks that was mentioned above. couldn't i create a disk clone image that way?Forget clonezilla it's just too slow and there's no grantee it will work. I recently created an image of my 500GB SSD...used space on Drive was about 160GB...Foxclone took 37 minutes and compressed the image to 120GB. Foxclone has an image verify feature...so you know the image created is good which is very important.
To restore it would be a little less under 37 minutes and has a very nice GUI too...it's free try it you've nothing to loose.
nice, i'll check this out.I've just came across a bespoke script that someone uses to do something similar.
at the moment i'm leaning on creating a new image 2 or so times of year to store in borgbackup and also store regular timeshift backups. when shit hits the fan, i pull down disk image, restore, and finally a timeshift retire to get back to the latest.
i'm actually doing these tests on a smaller drive, so i'm picking up the same size sad tomorrow to put into this test puter and try the above method.
