Re: Howto: Backup and restore your system!
Many thanks to the various respondents on this. I successfully made the backup using tar. I did find it took rather a long time, especially with Olympus RAW pictures and a BBC iPlayer video, I realise I should perhaps have excluded the Videos folder as well!
I tried the Clonezilla live CD but got a slight problem with getting to the right drive for storing the backup, so will try again later (I am just doing all of this in preparation for an upgrade, in case anything goes badly wrong, so I can get back to square 1).
I suppose I can use a tarball to back up my Windoze drive as well (sadly I have to use that other operating system for some applications that do not have Linux alternatives)?
