View Full Version : [ubuntu] Back up utilities

August 13th, 2009, 12:57 AM
I was going through some post about back-up utilities and found partimage was highly talked about. So I did:

"sudo apt-get install partimage"

It installed but where did it go cannot find it or access it.

I want to back up the whole hard drive to DVD will this work??

Here's the instruction to run PartImage: http://www.partimage.org/Partimage-manual_Usage. It says there that there are two ways to use it:

There are two ways to use Partition Image:
1. The command line You must type a command. For example: partimage -od -f1 -z1 save /dev/hda12 /mnt/backup/hda12.partimg.gz
2. The GUI (Graphical User Interface) This is an easy way: you just have to fill in the boxes in the GUI window

You can obtain the list of all commands, by typing partimage --help, so they won't be explained here.

Hope that helps.
