[xubuntu-users] Backup and restore to larger hard disk

Paragon site says it will do Linux EXT2 and 3 file-systems.  If your system
was formated with EXT4, I think it may still work since 4 is supposed to be
backwards compatible with 3 and 2, but I am not completely sure about how
well third party cloning software will handle that.
That is one of the issues with the Linux backup software, it tends to be
too complex for most people.  I really like Clonezilla but the interface is
not user friendly.
