August 15th, 2010, 01:38 AM
Hi Everyone !
I would like to find out how to back up a complete Ubuntu system, and then restore it on a clean harddisk.I have been running dual booting with Win XP until now. I am running Ubuntu 10.04, but have installed quite few add-on. I would like to make an Ubuntu-only machine now, with all the same apps still there, but dont want to go and download everything again. I am looking for a way I can back this entire Ubuntu installation up, and then restore it to a clean drive. Any ideas ?

Thanx I'll try it. I take it, this Clonezilla backup image, once restored, will fully bootable and all ?
