use dd.

Be carefull dd does not permit error.

If you want all your drive...boot from CD/DVD linux image.

Open a terminal

Plug-in an external device on a USB port

dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sd? bs=10M

refer to the dd's man page to see exactly what your doing.

> Clonezilla doesn't know how to span to DVD's.
> Promising newcomer Aomei Backupper has no stated support for ext4

> Redo Backup is a front-end for partclone, and I have seen no documentation
> indicates that it supports spanned DVD's.
> In short, everything that I have looked at in the past or now in a fresh

> I'm willing to fudge on my desire for a single image-the-disk operation if
