Deepin Clone – A System Backup and Restore Tool for Deepin OS Users

There a variety of System backup and recovery tools you can choose from but today we concentrate on one for a single Linux distro alone – Deepin OS.

Deepin OS is known for keeping everything within the family and developing their software for themselves. In other words, as a Deepin user, you seldom need to bother about apps because the dev team has that covered.

Deepin Clone is a utility app with which you can backup, restore, and manage disk partitions. The open-source system backup and restore tool is developed by Deepin technology for its Deepin OS users.

It houses a simple, intuitive, and beautiful User Interface along with a work environment uniform to whatever theme you set on your system.

Deepin Clone has 3 operations for media and they include Clone disk (which clones data from a source disk to a target disk), Disk to image (which backs up data to an image file), and Image to disk (which restores image files to target disks).

  1. Does this tool use sparse image formats?

    I’ve been using standard Gnome Disk and KDE Partition manager but both uses not sparse images. So if you are doing backup of 40Gb disk with only 9Gb used you will still get image of size 40Gb that is little bit wasting of disk resources from my point of view.
    That is reason why I recently did some investigation and started to use partclone tool for this purposes. It doesn’t blows final image size if source disk not uses full capacity.
