Really just a placeholder for interests, a bit of whimsy and the like
We had a SSD fail on an BeagleBone test system. It seemed to fail in the area written over by the test so cloning the SDD to a new drive seemed to be a sensible option. The Beaglebone was using Ubuntu 14.04 however we needed to clone the SSD using Windows 10. We usedRoadkil's(yes no second L) Disk Image utility. Its tiny and efficient, and copies and writes in the region of 1 to 1.5GB/min. Make sure you select the relevant 'Physical Drive' from the dropdown especially if the drive uses a foreign filesystem so you dont need to worry about individual partitions.
We used Windows' Disk Management to remove any partitions from the destination drive and then used RoadKil to write the cloned image.
Ubuntu filesystem used to be here: %APPDATA%\..\Local\Lxss
After Windows 10 Fall Creators update you can find Ubuntu filesystem here: %APPDATA%\..\Local\Packages\CanonicalGroupLimited.UbuntuonWindows_79rhkp1fndgsc\LocalState\rootfs
