I had Ubuntu 11.10 installed on my hard disk with Windows 7 in a multi-boot arrangement. If I wanted to make a backup copy of the entire disk, I used Clonezilla, and it worked fine. If there was a problem with Windows or Ubuntu, I simply restored them both by using the Clonezilla backup copy of the entire hard disk.
A few days ago, I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04. I now had a hard disk with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 in the same kind of multi-boot arrangement as before. However, every time I tried to make the same kind of backup copy as before, Clonezilla reported "Something went wrong." I tried this several times, and the same thing happened.
I reinstalled Windows 7 alone, and Clonezilla works fine. But as soon as I install Ubuntu 12.04 alongside it on the hard disk, and try to make a backup copy with Clonezilla, I get the same report, "Something went wrong."
I have reinstalled Windows 7 alone so that at least I can make a backup copy of Windows 7, if there's a problem, but I'd also like to have Ubuntu 12.04 installed alongside it on the same hard disk. I don't dare do that, though, because it would be impossible to make a backup copy.
If Clonezilla no longer works with Ubuntu in a multi-boot arrangement, can anyone suggest imaging software that would allow me to make a backup copy of my hard disk, the way I could with a Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04 multi-boot?
