    Question Is there a way to clone a Linux drive with OS X?
    I'm trying to clone a DirecTV DVR drive (which is Linux) in OS X. Any software for this?

    Not with OS X, but Clonezilla works great and it's free.

    Super Duper will clone the drive for you.
    Macs? Oh yes, several.

    SuperDuper and CCC only work with drives that are formatted to HFS+ (Extended Journaled). He's trying to clone a Linux drive not an OS X drive.
