Advice: System (image) backup

Currently running CachyOS-KDE but want to try CachyOS-Hyprland. Before doing so i would like to do a full system backup ala Norton Ghost.
So if i wanted to go back to KDE i just could image everything back.

Are there any program that can do this for me?

Current setup:

/dev/nvme0n1p4 441522548 61397692 380124856  14% /home
/dev/nvme0n1p1   1021984      296   1021688   1% /boot/efi
tmpfs            7878692    30332   7848360   1% /tmp
/dev/nvme0n1p3  40894464 20686376  20208088  51% /

Yes, clonezilla.

Just put it on a USB stick and boot.

It does everything. Including offering the option of saving/restoring an image to/from a samba/nfs network share and compressing images on the fly.

Another faster but completely different option: if you have installed cachyos with btrfs, you can just make a btrfs snapshot and install hyperland, and later go back to the previous state (snapshot) if you want.
