Should I expect problems when cloning laptops with Clonezilla?


I am setting up multiple laptops for small organization. I set up the first laptop and set up Nextcloud desktop client for a specific user, everything works. Then I clone the disk to multiple laptops. Looks like there are no problems, I created a file that was synced fine.

Or should I expect a problem? (who knows, maybe there are some checksums/IDs that are usually locally generated and must be different, but now they are the same across many devices).


It is fine.

Don’t expect Nextcloud to understand anything about your Clonezilla activity. It will sync as you’ve defined, so if you externally add files into your synced directories you’ll need to scan for changes manually with occ. Otherwise, all is well.

Good for you on distributing out your data!
