[SATLUG] Live backup / hot imaging software for Linux?

So sometimes your drive works and sometimes it doesn't? After you back your data up I'd run a gateway scan to make sure you HD isn't damaged. If there are only a few bad sector you'd be able to extend the life of the drive. If the drive may damaged I'd wait to do the clone and only do data recovery/backup because there could be important information on the bad sectors. If I'm reading to much into it my apologies.

Do you mean the filesystem type?  If so, it was ext3, in both cases.  Same drive worked sometimes, but not others.  Or maybe I didn't understand your question correctly?
