May 21, 2011

I'm just setting up a partition on a seperate HDD in my system. I plan to use the partition to backup the important files on my main HDD (to guard against HD crash).

1. /backup/
2. /media/backup/
3. /mnt/backup/
4. /home/chris/backup/

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Backup Or Clone

Aug 9, 2011

I have a file server running in an office that's mostly used for file sharing and a scanner saves pdf files to the server. I'm running the latest LTS ubuntu server edition and I really only have ssh installed and samba. My question is that I've done so much to the server as far as premissions and configuration and I'd like to make a clone of this to another computer and not sure how I would do this?

I'm not sure if clonezilla or something like this can perform this task? I basically just have a very old computer and now I have another very old computer that I want to make into a spare just incase something happens to the original. Any recommedations on how I would accomplish this?

I am new Ubuntu. I have a new Dell Mini10 running that I have configured and running. I want to clone or backup the system at it's current state. I have been looking at the options and Clonezilla seems to be recommended often. Are there other choices that are easer or better?

Ubuntu :: Backup Software That Can Clone A Directory?

Mar 28, 2010

I'm looking for software that can backup all the files in my /home directory including hidden files.

I liked Lucky Backup, but it puts everything in a tar file, meaning that the backup fails if the file gets too large (4 GB I think). I would prefer to avoid using tar/archives anyway, as often I only need to recover 1 file from a backup (an archive holding my 50 Gb of data would take ages to open).

Does anyone know of a program or a way to get rsync or the like to copy all the files in a directory, including hidden files, into another directory ( so I end up with effectively a carbon copy of the original). Disk space is not an issue so I don't need to compress anything. I'm not bothered whether its a fancy GUI-based program or a rsync command, just so long as it can save my previous files from.... myself.

General :: Program To Backup To Desktop?

Jul 8, 2010

i'm looking for a reliable program to do backups to my desktop.(from the remote linux my desktop )Preferably an FTP program that I can login to with Root access.... but most importantly, a program that will only copy over changed / new files after the first full backup. Thats the biggest problem I have currently.. when i do it with WinSCP, I usually backup the WHOLE entire /vhosts/ directory each and everytime. And its 2 GB's in size....takes forever when copying to desktop. I would only like changed / new files to be copied over after the first full backup.

Ubuntu Installation :: Clone 10.04 Server - GPT Partition And Grub

Feb 3, 2011

I have a bunch of computers with the same configuration, so I would like to install Ubuntu only to one master computer and later on just copy the partition layout and the filesystem unto other computers. Previously I was able to simply copy the partition layout (via the sfdisk utility), the filesystem (a simple "cp -a") and install Grub (via script). Now I had to use the parted utility to partition the 2TB drive and Grub2 is the default boot loader.

My questions are now:
1. How do I copy the partition layout from /dev/sda (master) to /dev/sdb (clone)?
2. How do I batch install install Grub2 to the other disk (e.g. /dev/sdb) ?

In Grub 0.97 it used to be something like that:
# GRUB the disk
grub --no-floppy --batch <<EOF_GRUB
root ($GRUB,0)
setup ($GRUB)
EOF_GRUB .....

In Grub 2 I tried with:
grub-install --force --root-directory=/mnt/sdb1/ /dev/sdb
Only to get this error: .....

The Grub2 syntax is way different compared to Grub0.97. Yes, I do could use the Grub2-suggested option but since the partition layouts on both partitions are equal, I see little point in setting the BIOS Boot Partition option, since the master computer works without it and I don't remember any error message during the install.

General :: Unable To Restore Backup On NTFS Partition

Jul 22, 2010

I used Ping Linux 8 months ago to create a ghost-like image of my primary partition. (Windows 7 on NTFS) The image is on the second partition of my hard drive (Western Digital 250 gig). I need to restore now, but Ping is unable to mount the volume. In fact, it will not mount any volume or perform any new backup. I made sure nothing has changed in Bios options since I created the backup. Does this imply that is not the appropriate tool to work on NTFS system?

Ubuntu :: Need Program To Backup Across DVDs

Mar 9, 2010

Back in the DOS days (yes I am dating myself) there was a backup command that would back the selected files across a series of floppy disks. Is there such a command in Karmic to backup across multiple DVDs?

I would like to do some backups of my data and other important files but I have more than 4 GB of information. I have seen posts on ways to write a compressed file but that still stores it on the HDD and I would like the files on DVDs in case the HDD crashes.
