Is there a Ubuntu program equivalent to Ghost32 for Windows for saving disk images?

Asked by Mike Boileau

I have Ghost32 to capture disk images of my Windows partitions, but would also like to capture images of my Ubuntu partitions as well.

Yes, look at Clonezilla:

You can also do such things with command line: dd will write raw bit data to a file and directly back to the device again. Generally, under Linux these direct read and write operations can not be done on a mounted file system.

Chris, thank you for the prompt response. I'm sending this message from a Clonezilla'd drive I just completed: Win7 and Ubuntu partitions loaded via Grub and everything works like the source. Fantastic!
