Would likely give it 5 stars if it included Clonezilla instead of a similar tool that admits to poor support for NTFS. Seems to be the best multi-purpose alternative to Parted Magic though.

For anybody seeking drop-in Clonezilla support / interoperability, have a look at Rescuezilla icon Rescuezilla

It has GParted and classic Clonezilla, but the focus is an easy-to-use graphical Clonezilla frontend called "Rescuezilla" that has full compatibility with Clonezilla!

A good Live CD. It has everything you need from the command line to mount/unmount and encrypt/decrypt hard disk and USB partitions. Even has gparted for changing disk partitions and formating. I even was able to mount by bluray USB optical drive and make a backup image of my harddisk partition. Granted the command line for doing that is cryptic, but nonetheless, This cd had everything i needed out of the box for doing that and it fits entirely on a CD-ROM making for a fast download.

I even use it as crude word processor by opening files in a text editor when i fear that my computer has been compromised with viruses, then save them on luks encrypted partition that is easily mounted and unmounted from the command line.

Said about SystemRescue as an alternative


Like Parted Magic, this is a Linux distribution packed with utilities. Some the same or similar. Critically missing, however, is Clonezilla. It includes a similar utility but that utility warns that its NTFS support is weak and not very trustworthy.
