Distrowatch last edited by
Rescuezilla is a specialist Ubuntu-based distribution designed for system rescue tasks, including backups and system restoration. The project’s latest version is Rescuezilla 2.2 which introduces, among other features, support for working with virtual machine disks. “Flash the Rescuezilla image to a USB stick using balenaEtcher (this will erase all data on your USB stick). Reboot your PC and boot from USB. Rescuezilla v2.2 adds the highly-requested ‘cloning’ feature, support for virtual machine images and more. Here is a partial list of what’s changed: Implemented cloning (direct ‘device-to-device’ mode). 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). Added ability to restore and explore images created by all remaining open-source imaging frontends. (Redo Rescue, Foxclone, FSArchiver, Redo v0.9.2 and very-early handling of FOG Project images). Added ability to customize compression format (gzip, zstandard, uncompressed) and compression level. Implemented remaining Clonezilla image restore logic to improve handling of many corner cases.” Additional details can be found in the project’s release announcement.
