I couldn't find any info on the net if Redo Backup and Recovery Tool supports the ext4 file system in Linux Mint. This software seems a little bit outdated. Release date for the latest version is 2012. Anyone using this tool with success for Linux?

 

I could need some advices about a backup tool in order to use it in Linux Mint 18.3, with GUI and in form of a Live CD/USB if possible.

Image For Windows includes a USB and DVD boot for Linux.  I only have Windows, so I haven't tested the Linux boot.  There might be a trial period for IfW / BootIt Bare Metal software.  Please post your results if you do test IfW's Linux boot, thanks.

Thanks RolandJS. I've never heard about Image for Windows before. And it isn't an inexpensive software as far as I read. But I don't want to try/install another software right now.

 

- I already have Paragon Partition Manager (paid) installed on my Vista drive which doesn't support ext4 file system.

- a free version of Paragon Backup&Recovery on the Windows 7 drive, which probably supports ext4FS. But I didn't try it yet.

- and a Redo Backup&Recovery Live CD created years ago. Not sure about ext4FS support.

 

I'm just asking about a software which could be simply used by downloading an ISO and creating a Live CD/USB.

I believe Macrium can backup and restore linux partitions but I'm not 100% on this and this is in a dual boot enviroment.

 

Clonezilla is the bootable imaging program most people would use for linux. I would look at some youtube videos on how to use it first.

"...I'm just asking about a software which could be simply used by downloading an ISO and creating a Live CD/USB..."

I googled "backup and restore ISO downloads" and got this:

Well, I've booted from my "multiboot" USB stick (different distros, some tools etc. created with YUMI) and started Redo Backup&Recovery. It has detected my new Intel SSD LM drive and every single partition formatted as ext4 on it. Unfortunately I don't have an external ext4 drive right now to make a backup.

 

EDIT: I've found this tutorial. Redo seems supporting ext4 file system:
