I have a thumb drive loaded with clonezilla. My son set it up so that when the thumb drive was inserted and then used to boot from.....a screen would appear which would automatically select the source drive and then auto select the destination drive.....one click to confirm and proceed....and it would backup the entire drive (excluding movies) in approx 16 minutes.
My son and I have fallen foul of each other and the clonezilla thingie has "gone out" in sympathy !...it boots, reaches the screen...selects the source...but doesnt select the destination. It then backups to the source drive which is not the idea behind doing a backup !
I seem to remember words my son used like 'cron job'..???....I am not sure of that...at all....and am seriously hesitant to fiddle what i know stuff all about. (as much as I would LOVE to have it set up again
(when it boots to the thumb drive....there are two options when selecting the thumb drive....the first selects the screen I have just described....the second brings up a yellowish screen((clonezillas)....which almost immediately tells me it has failed....or words to that effect....and then takes me back to the screen where i select again.)
I will take a pic of the two screens which present themselves as well as the boot screen choices as well.
I will pop them in the next post
