# What software program can be made use of to create a restorable drive photo?

Not exactly sure what Linux software program I would certainly make use of for this. I'm seeking something like Acronis True Image for Windows, but also for Linux. The regulation is that we are maintaining Windows out of the formula, I intend to have the ability to count only on Ubuntu to take care of the monitoring and also reconstruction of backup photos.

A straightforward remedy is to make use of the dd command.

To support a drive dividing (eg./ dev/sda1), run this command:

dd if=/dev/sda1 of=~/sda1_backup


and also to recover:

sudo dd if=~/sda1_backup of=/dev/sda1


For even more details on the dd command, see man dd.

To lower the room made use of by the backup photos, you can make use of gzip, bzip2 etc to compress the photos. If you do this, you will certainly require to decompress the photos prior to recovering.

Clonezilla is rather preferred though I've never ever utilized it. I would certainly visualize you need to have the ability to install it to its very own dividing and also pull it off right into grub so it exists as a boot alternative (which I think is what you are going with).

Yet most individuals simply boot to it on CD or USB.

A rather more recent device is FSArchiver, which is consisted of on the SystemRescueCD and also sustains recovering to dividings smaller sized than the initial as long as there suffices room for all documents. It collaborates with the majority of filesystems that linux sustains, can maintain both "standard" and also "expanded" features (as an example for SELinux), can compress the archives with lzo, gzip, bzip2 or lzma, and also can store the archives secured.
