    I think you can do (on the local machine)
    Code:
    ~$ ssh username@server.somewhere.com 'tar -cz /stuff' > /local/path/to/backup.tar.gz
    to backup the directory /stuff from you remote machine to your local machine. Or you could use rsync.

    Re: Howto: Backup and restore your system!

    hi,

    so i have a bit of a concern that i might be way off on, and your help figuring this out would be appreciated. ok i have 4 partitions on my drive. 1 for xp, a boot partition, an encrypted swap, and encrypted /root. i'm getting a new drive for my machine so i will have to remake the encrypted partitions, reinstall gutsy, and then restore using this method. i have a feeling things aren't going to go smoothly. maybe a grub boot problem after i restore not finding the gutsy partition, maybe some uid= issues? any advice or experiences with this?

    thanks for the bandwidth,

    Yeah, its just extracting the backup, so any additional files you put on after the backup will stay there. To do a clean restore, blank the filesystem, format it etc. and then either reinstall the OS and then extract the archive over the blank OS. Or you could do it from the live-boot of your ubuntu disc, a little tricker because you'll need to mount your HDD-disk and then point it to extract in slightly different place.

    you shouldn't have any issues if you exclude boot and fstab

    uninstall any apps you don't want then take the backup... otherwise backup all of your data and perform a clean install, then restore just data :example home dir

    hi,

    i wish that was the case. however, just as i suspected the restore did not go so well. i never backup the /boot, and then fixed the fstab file. however on the reboot, not only did i get a grub "error 20", but when i fixed that error, and started to boot up i got another error. just as i originally suspected i get a uuid related error. the error points to the /dev/disk/by-uuid directory and says that the process is waiting for the root partition. has anybody actually restored using this backup method to a newly created encrypted partition? any advice would be great thanks.
