    Question Re: Howto: Backup and restore your system!

    Thanks for the howto! I just have a couple questions about it:

    1. I'd like to create the .tgz file on an external hard drive (which I know how to mount). How would I type that in the tar command?

    2. I have two partitions on my hard drive I'd like to backup: an unbuntu partition and a windows partition. Would the procedure be the same for both (I'll exclude the... exclude options on the windows partitions)?

    Thanks for the help!

    Code:
    tar cvpzf {Insert External Hard Drive Location Here (example: /media/Maxtor/ or maybe /mnt/Maxtor/) and include slash at end}backup.tgz --exclude=/proc --exclude=/lost+found --exclude=/backup.tgz --exclude=/mnt --exclude=/sys /
    $(fortune)

    Will this work if moving your system to a new, larger harddrive?

    Do you want to backup the external hard drive, or just put a backup of your computer on it?

    Re: Howto: Backup and restore your system!

    Thanks for the tut. I did a backup and I got this message at the end. (tar: /: file changed as we read it) Is this normal? Thanks

    Thanks! So, if I'm backing up a partition from a live cd, would I have /dev/sda2 (for example) at the end or would I be better off navigating to the root of both partitions?
