I am running 15.04 (with LVM) and I want to create an iso image of my SDD. Installed Clonezilla (
sudo apt-get install clonezilla) and tried to use the tool from within 15.04. It tells me "
Error! No existing partitions(s) or no unmounted partition(s) are found! To use Clonezilla to save or clone a partition, the source partition must exist or be unmounted! ..."
Did a bit more reading on Clonezilla, and the usual practice appears to be to burn the Clonezilla Live DVD, boot from that, and then clone/restore your primary Ubuntu image. If this is the recommended practice - I have to ask, why is Clonezilla available as a application that can be installed within a Ubuntu instance?
For convenience, I would prefer to just clone my SDD from within a running 15.04 instance (as I do with Acronis TrueImage from within my Windows 8 install). Not possible?
FYI, I have the following configuration
sda -> [
sda5 -> [
swap_1]]. i.e. just one physical SDD with LVM installed.
I don't mind using some other tool (other than Clonezilla) if that would allow me to clone from within my running Ubuntu instance.
