I'd like to know how you manage your backing-up:
- what do you back-up
- and how? (on what media, using what programs, how do you keep track?)
As I am relatively new to Linux up to now I just backup the
copying (mostactually working with, saving them to another HD or to CD's by
sense inof them are compressed photo files, so gz etc. doesn't make much
ever mightthat case).
But I have absolutely no backup of settings, system parts or what
ideabe necessary when e.g. my system-disc crashes. I don't even have an
and: how_what_ would be of use to back-up, how and what to keep up-to-date,
just anotherto re-use it in the bad case...
Maybe this is interesting not only to me, but If you consider it
sorry, butsilly newbie question already asked more than you can stand, I am
anyway...then would very much appreciate to be directed to suitable links
The only silly/stupid question is the one that is not asked.
Look into using mondoarchive. It is included on the distribution CD/DVD
and works with many media types, CD, DVD, tape, disk...
That looks very interesting.
One question. How would you propose a restore test? Having been through
this in real life, I always told my clients that the only valid backup
is one that has been verified and tested on an actual system.
Could one "restore" to a blank VMWare session, do you think?
