Post ntfsclone and ntfs-3g
Currently, i am using ntfsclone for creating ntfs partition backups. But, after some benchmarking it is found that ntfsclone is slow as compared to acronis true image.

Following are some benchmarking results:

NTFS Partition Size = 74G
Data Size(Used Size) = 3.1G

NOTE: backup is created on external USB hdd.

ntfsclone with compression ON
8 min 31 sec to create the backup

ntfsclone is used in the following way
Code:
ntfsclone -f --save-image --overwrite - /dev/sda1 | gzip -1 -c > /mnt/myUSB/myOS.img


ntfsclone with compression OFF
9 min 11 sec to create the backup

ntfsclone is used in the following way
Code:
ntfsclone -f --save-image --overwrite /mnt/myUSB/myOS.img /dev/sda1


Acronis True Image
1 min 42 sec to create the backup


Can i use the ntfs-3g(free or commercial) like ntfsclone?

Can somehow ntfs-3g solve the problem?

How can ntfs-3g help me?

Can anyone suggest a solution/hint/guide?

Regards,

Use the existing product which gives you the best quality/price ratio.
