    gparted for future reference will clone a partition and all the data on it. A lot of folks are unaware that gparted has that feature, but it does. ;)

    qt4 archiver. Best Linux partition/drive/folder/share backup solution ever. I don't use anything else because they don't compare. Dedup is garbage and most all others can't backup a running system and restore it and it work but qt4 can.
