How-To: Clone Your Linux Hard Drive

Filed under
HowTos

Most system builders know all too well the headaches involved in recovering a crashed hard drive. The bottom line is, there really are only three kinds of hard drives:

  • Hard drives that have failed.

  • Hard drives that will fail.
  • Hard drives that were retired in the course of a computer upgrade before failure.

In this TechBuilder Recipe, I’ll show you how to set up a hard drive mirror clone--as opposed to a new drive mirror (or what’s known as a “bare metal restore”)--for Linux-based systems.

You don't have to be a Linux expert to get these procedures to work. I've tried to keep them simple and specific. Follow them exactly, and you should be able to save yourself days, even weeks, of work.

Full Story.
