Drive or partition cloning software to deal with GPT

Hello,

 

I would like to know if there is a handy program to deal with disk or partition cloning.

I was testing a dual-boot D420 with OSX and Windows 7, but then realized that Acronis recognizes the partitions but does not allow to clone them. Apparently the standard clonezilla configuration (without digging in the options) cannot see further than the first OSX partitions either.

 

What should I use for this task?

Thanks for the ideas, I had a windows-centric mind :-D but I will take a look to that programs. I would prefer some os-independent solution but if I find a working one I will come here to write my results.

 

Carbon Copy or Super Duper should work perfectly. It won't back up your bootloader though, so once you eventually restore your backup, you'll simply have to run the chameleon installer on the drive to make it bootable again.
