BACKGROUND
- I want to begin a backup and recovery solution for my home desktop computer.

QUESTION
Please tell me which version of CloneZilla should I use for my system. I want to create a bootable CD-ROM from which to run CloneZilla and then to create either a clone, or a disk image.

Also, for ongoing (partial) backups please explain whether CloneZilla compares to Macrium Reflect 7 to accomplish a simple backup / recovery solution. Not sure whether I need Incremental or Differential, or both. Your experience with Macrium would also be appreciated, or alternative solutions.

RESTRICTIONS
- I want to store the images in the cloud either on-the-fly, as created, or after saving to hard drive first.
- This question may evolve into which online backup solution to use. But let's start with what I've asked above, for now.
