Partclone is a program similar to the well-known backup utility "Partition Image" a.k.a partimage. Partclone provides utilities to save and restore used blocks on a partition and is designed for higher compatibility of the file system by using existing libraries, e.g. e2fslibs is used to read and write the ext2 partition.
Partclone now supports ext2, ext3, ext4, hfs+, reiserfs, reiser4, btrfs, vmfs3, vmfs5, xfs, jfs, ufs, ntfs, fat(12/16/32), exfat, f2fs, nilfs. The available programs are:
partclone.btrfs partclone.ext2, partclone.ext3, partclone.ext4 partclone.fat32, partclone.fat12, partclone.fat16 partclone.ntfs partclone.exfat partclone.hfsp partclone.jfs partclone.reiserfs partclone.reiser4 partclone.ufs (with SU+J) partclone.vmfs (v3 and v5) partclone.xfs partclone.f2fs partclone.nilfs2
