Rescuezilla 2.3 Released

New features and improvements on Rescuezilla 2.3:

  1. Implemented cloning (direct ‘device-to-device’ mode)
  2. Added ability to restore and explore all virtual machine image formats supported by qemu-nbd
    (VirtualBox’s VDI, VMWare’s VMDK, Qemu’s QCOW2, HyperV’s VHDx, raw .dd/.img, and many more)
  3. Added ability to restore and explore images created by all remaining open-source imaging frontends
    Added ability to customize compression format (gzip, standard, uncompressed) and compression level
  4. Implemented remaining Clonezilla image restore logic to improve the handling of many corner cases:
    • Grows filesystem to fit partition size (but almost always filesystem size is already equal to partition size)
    • Runs filesystem check on all restored filesystems
    • Clears the NTFS volume dirty flag, for source during backup/clone and destination for restore/clone
    • Removes the udev MAC address records (if any) using Clonezilla script
    • Re-install the syslinux bootloader (if any) using Clonezilla script
    • Re-install the GRUB bootloader (if any) using Clonezilla script
    • Update initramfs (if any) using Clonezilla script
    • Relocates all NTFS filesystems using geometry from sfdisk or (if available) EDD (Enhanced Disk Device)
    • Restores LVM VG metadata with –force to match a recent Clonezilla patch referring to thin-pool LVs
    • Ensures each LVM VG metadata once is only restored once to support newer versions of vgcfgrestore
    • Updates EFI NVRAM for the boot device
  5. Replaces Ubuntu 20.10 (Groovy) build with a build based on Ubuntu 21.04 (Hirsute) for best support of new hardware
  6. Added option to shutdown or reboot after the operation completes successfully (#165)
  7. Added ability to connect to NFS and SSH (SFTP) network shared folders (#81, #118)
  8. Added ability to write a description for backup images (#137)
  9. Added ability to take a screenshot by pressing Print Screen
  10. Powered by Linux kernel 5.13
