I want to copy everything from my lunix computer haridsk to my usb drive, do you think HDD Raw Copy Tool can do the job?

in future if my lunix computer hardisk OS corrupted, I can use my USB Drive to HDD Raw Copy back the data into the corrupted OS hardisk, so it will be back to normal after I clone.

currently i'm using clonezilla, i'm not sure is there any other programe out there better then clonezilla....

clonezilla is fine. think others are different not better. if it does the job and you know how to backup and restore with clonezilla - stick with it.

One thing I would suggest is to TEST! I have seen way too many times people assuming they have backups and then find out the hard way they did not have what the thought.. including one person that kept only the last incremental backup and no full backups and another with a backup iso of 0bytes.

when testing, make sure you are not testing "over" the original in case it fails!
