|What are the differences between partclone and ntfsclone ?|
|Basically partclone.ntfs and ntfsclone are the same. Both of them are based on the libntfs. However, partclone.ntfs has some improvements:
So that's why we switched to partclone.ntfs.
BTW, we sent the patch file (part 4 in the above) to linux-ntfs project, but so far we do not see it will be included or not.
- CRC checking info is stored.
- TUI (Terminal User Interface) output is available for partclone.
- partclone can do partition clone directly. E.g.
partclone.ntfs -b -s /dev/sda1 -O /dev/sdb1
For ntfsclone, no such option allows you to do so, then you have to pipe.
- More messages are shown when running partclone.
