In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Clonezilla on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Clonezilla is a suite of open-source drive cloning, drive imaging, and system deployment utilities used to simplify the deployment and maintenance of a group of computers. With Clonezilla, not only you can perform a full backup of a device data blocks directly to another drive also known as disk cloning, but you can also backup entire disks or individual partitions remotely (using SSH, Samba, or NFS shares) or locally to images which can be all encrypted and stored in central backup storage.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you through the step-by-step installation of the Clonezilla OpenSource clone system (OCS) on Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 18.04, 16.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 20.04, 18.04, 16.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
