Shasheen Ediriweera has announced the release of Rescuezilla 2.0, a major new version of the fork of the “Redo Backup & Restore” distribution.
Rescuezilla 2.0, which is the first 64-bit only release, has been announced by Shasheen Ediriweera. One of the key changes that come with Rescuezilla 2.0 is that it switched to create backups in Clonezilla format for full interoperability with Clonezilla. Backups created using Clonezilla can be restored using Rescuezilla, as Rescuezilla is now a drop-in replacement to Clonezilla.
What is new ?
Rescuezilla v2.0 supports restoring images created by Clonezilla, Rescuezilla, Redo Backup and Recovery v0.9.8-v1.0.4, and the old, unofficial Redo Backup updates by Sourceforge users OAM775, chcatzsf and louvetch. It can be downloaded here.
