I'd still recommend Redo Backup & Recovery over Clonezilla .. particularly for a first time user and if you're happier with a "proper" GUI rather than ncurses (?).

Thanks for the advice I'll have a look at that :)

I have not heard of Redo before and might try it sometime, but have grown rather fond with Clonezilla being able to load itself into memory and then I can remove the live media. ;)

Well yeh, there is that I suppose :)

I like some of the features of Redo like automatic network (share) discovery, so you can (easily) load the backup from a network drive

and the fact it has some other useful GUI tools, interweb connection and browser and proper desktop.
(I'm guessing you could add persistence to a LiveUSB of it which might come in handy too)

Definitely worth a looksee .. but I was really recommending it for people that haven't used Clonezilla .. if that's already what you use and you're comfortable with it........

Apparently you can also build it into any "buntu" distro if you can be bothered:
