will enable me to write on a USB stick hardware which I would carry along with me.
Considering there is other software such as odd, portage or even part clone, the fact is they all
require codes and commands which would need more time in the acquisition of the image from
the given computer (Cawley, 2017). Therefore, the reason why I would select the Clonezilla live
software is that it is easy to use in that it only requires keyboard-driven menus instead of obscure
commands (coding) yet it is very efficient and time-saving.
The instruction for using the software to acquire the image on to a USB stick is: burn t...
