I'm looking for a free/commercial application on a bootable media to quickly take raw partition images, preferably with network support for destination.
I normally use ddrescue, but initializing a bootable desktop linux solution & HDDs, and dealing with the CLI is a little impractical. Of course there are some more task-specific linux distributions (like 'ultimatebootcd'), which one can be the answer.
I have two products from Paragon and Acronis, but don't think any of their products support raw partition backups through the bootable media. What I'm looking for is just like their boot disks, but with raw image support.
So I prefer;
- raw partition backup
- fast boot
- network destination support
- ntfs destination support
Note: By 'raw', I also mean the destination image file shouldn't have a product-specific format, so I will be able to analyze it as a raw disk image.
