If you haven’t downloaded Clone Zilla since before January 27th, 2012, do yourself a favor and go get it. Version 1.2.12-10 is out, and holy mackerel is it fast.
I just started taking an image of a drive, and in less time than it normally takes to get to the “Start Clonezilla Live” screen, I already had the image going. I’m not sure if the speed of the cloning is any faster, but it’s well worth the download.
I also noticed an option to check to see if the image file is restorable. That’s pretty sweet too.
Many thanks and Kudos to the CloneZilla group!

Let me let you in on a little secret, this is a really old post. I originally wrote it in 2012, but I think it’s still kind of relevant. If you haven’t downloaded CloneZilla in a long time, do yourself a favor and go get it, they are continuously improving it.
