Is partimage necessary?

Post by cfogelberg » Wed Apr 08, 2009 1:53 pm

Hello all,

This might be an incredibly dumb question, but anyway here goes... Is it necessary to use partimage if I can just log in using a live CD and tar the partition. See this forum thread for details:

Thanks for clarifying this for me :)

I used to use tar.

But Partimage is much faster and easier. I wouldn't bother using tar any more.

I've needed to restore a couple of times, and Partimage worked like a charm.
