Re: Best backup before update
You can use rsync. It allows incremental backups, so you won't have to delete your old backups, you just update them. If you don't want to use command-line, you can install a GUI frontend for rsync called grsync, which can makes it easier to use.
EDIT: Sorry I misread your post. I suppose you could use rsync without logging in, by booting into recovery mode...
sudo apt-get install grsync

The whole thing is so patently infantile, so foreign to reality, that to anyone with a friendly attitude to humanity it is painful to think that the great majority of mortals will never be able to rise above this view of life.
