    Can pmagic do compressed cloned images or is it sector by sector like clonezilla so you need the same size or bigger backup drive?

    PMagic contains Clonezilla as its main tool for disk imaging/cloning. Clonezilla can surely do compressed/used-data-only disk images, which can be saved to much smaller sized backup disks, as long as you use common file systems that is supported by Clonezilla. If Clonezilla has to use sector-by-sector disk imaging that means you are backing up a uncommon file system.

    Thanks, I need this to secure erase my NVMe SSD, the old one still available from Major Geeks (2013-08_01) are still good for SATA SSD's, although not NVMe. Saved me $11 & the hashes were on the money with the above. Plus the Google Drive download was fast, under 2 minutes & I don't really have blazing fast speed, just breaking 71Mb/sec on last test. Download was showing progress at close to 6.6Mb/sec, by the time I went to the fridge for to grab a soda & returned, it was over, except my final check below.

    In addition to the hashes above, the more secure ones (SHA-256 & 512) are as follows, using the MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility 2.1, free for everyone! EDIT: Sorry, I couldn't post link (nor that in quoted post) due to Forum restrictions, just Google (w/out the quotes) 'MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility 2.1' & select the one by Raymond's Wordpress, his site is reliable.

    SHA-256: 7F3F20574B17FB2FE45359A9D23A0ACF13FE6931AE6350FF822C0945C3D20DC5

    SHA-512: 4EA2C757336EBAE0E0688216FEB36B66CA1AED621B0456959350AF99CC7E7E4BB956FE5E25C2C33176FEEB901BE1503B06A67C676C49F3B67AEEB966C2C01BC6

    Due to the Malware & Ransomware threats of today, SHA-1 no longer can be considered fully secure. For that matter, none can, yet a 256 (or better yet, 512) hash is far better than the rest. Most major Linux distributions now gives SHA-256 checksums, in large part due to the Linux Mint Cinnamon unauthorized redistribution that happened sometime in not too distant history. More secure hashes are better for everyone, provided we have the right one(s).:)

    Hi everyone, a small offer to the thread and community here from me too, as you've all been helpful through releases. Had to compress it with Keka in 7z format at work. It includes ISO, MD5 and SHA1 files of pmagic_2018_08_06
