Ubuntu :: Real Time Backup In A Folder Called /home/backup?

Feb 2, 2011

I've tried to google but not much luck. What I would like to do is have anumber of folders on my desktop and their contents, replicated/duplicated into another folder on the same PC in real time. So for example, if I were to change an OpenOffice document in a specific folder on my Desktop it would be replicated/duplicated in real time. If I had three folders on my Desktop A, B and C they would also appear/be backed up (in real time) in a folder called /home/backup. Can this be done?

Ubuntu :: How To Backup Entire System

Apr 19, 2011

Custdistro means it will backup your all/thing without/home and customback means it will backup all thing in /. It can create an ISO if your backup is less then 4 GB. Well, i've made a lot of changes to ubuntu 10.04 and now i love it! It does everything i'll want from any computer. This took me a lot of time, follow several tutorials and destroy the entire system a couple of times. The last one is a BIG problem because restoring my system to the state before i ****** all up takes some time again.Do any of you guys know how to backup all my system settings, programs and files? So that if i corrupt my system again i can restore it to be exactly as my current state?

Does the dump command back up entire file-systems or is it capable of backing up subsets of a file-system? And is tar capable of taking device names (for file systems) as input to be archived?

Ubuntu :: Difficulty Restoring Home Folder From Backup

Oct 10, 2010

Before I reinstalled Ubuntu (this time allocating the entire disk to it as I never really used Windows any more) I backed up the entire contents of my /home folder using Deja Dup. Now that I am done reinstalling Ubuntu I am trying to restore the backup. However, when it actually begins restoring the backup, it says "Restore failed: failed with an unknown error".

Ubuntu :: Unable To Get Home Folder Open In 11.04 Unity System

Jun 11, 2011

I got 11.04 installed on my laptop a few weeks ago and all seemed well. I've only used this machine for general surfing and downloads (legal of course )Anyway, last night it started to display some odd or should I say, show stopping issues.

Issue 1. Clicking the Home Folder button at the top of the left launcher does nothing. Well when I say nothing is does dim the icon, the hard drive turns but no folder opens. OS function 101 failure.

Issue 2. Inserting a USB stick (that just last week we working fine) does nothing. Again, when I say nothing, the harddrive light goes on, but the USB drive does not open.

Issue 3. Unable to get my home folder open in the Ubuntu 11.04 Unity system I downloaded Sunflower, a file browser app. It runs fine from the command line, but when the I decided to make a shortcut to this on the desktop, I right clicked on the desktop in order to use the Create Launcher option. But guess what? The right click does not reveal any menu. Right clicking on the desktop does nothing.

This is not good enough for what is suppose to be a mature stable OS!I really do not want to go to Fedora 15 or <shudder> Windows 7 so, how do I fix this broken system? Is there some system repair that reinstalls the OS or something? Is there a system repair that does not require me getting all the updates again?

General :: Ubuntu - Rename Home Folder Structure To System Language?

Oct 14, 2010

I have installed the Ubuntu distro first in Portuguese. Then, I decided I wanted the English language. I would like that the default folders like "Desktop" and "Documents" were renamed to this names, instead of staying in their Portuguese equivalent.

I can not guarantee this, but I am almost certain I did successfully convert the folder names from Portuguese to English on a previous install when I decided to change the language. So, I suppose this is possible.

Ubuntu :: Clonezilla - Backup My Entire Harddrive

Jul 14, 2011

I want to backup my entire harddrive and I assume the easiest way to do it is using Clonezilla.

Clonezilla makes an image file....but how do you get the image onto multiple DVD's? When burning the image file does K3B allow you to "change the full DVD" and add another disk?

In other words- any harddrive I have (already filled with 79 Gb) is going to make an image bigger than something that can fit onto a DVD.

Software :: Ubuntu 9.04 Server - Finding Utility To Backup Entire HDD?

Dec 26, 2009

I'm running ubuntu 9.04 64-bit server and am looking to backup my entire OS drive. I've got a 200GB main drive, and a 1TB storage drive mounted at /storage. I'm already good as far as setting up backups of my data - but redoing all of my settings and software would be a nightmare in the event of a HD failure.

So what I'm looking for is a command line utility to do an image of the main 200gb drive to an external usb drive. The software needs to function similar to the Windows Vista/7 System Image utility or DriveImage XML and be able to make the images without shutting down. The best I've found so far was [URL], but it uses a GUI, and doesn't support large files.

Ubuntu :: Using Old Home Backup In Separate Home Partition

Mar 28, 2011

recently i made a backup of my home directory in 10.10 before reinstalling 10.10. again.This time I chose to manually define the partitions (50GB Root, 25GB Swap, 325GB Home)Now i wish to migrate the old home into the newly installed home, which is on a separate partition.I have found the following documentation URL...Still, as a beginner I am not quite sure about the necessary steps to perform.As the new home is located on a separate partition is it possible to simple delete all directories there and copy all directories from old home to new home with rsync?

Do I have to install all the software that corresponds to the old home first followed by migrating home or first migrating home followed by installing the software such as thunderbird, Texlive2010 etc.Guess that migration should take place at a later stage. Otherwise my old profile files from firefox and thunderbird will be overwriten by new ones?

I'd like to know what solutions do you, people, use to backup a live system that acts as a small home mail/file/irc/web server and some other purposes. For example, right now, to backup the mail, I have to stop fetchmail, kill vixie-cron to avoid any problem and then do the backup. Then restart vixie-cron.I wonder if there's any solution that will leave me do the backup without all this hassle.

Ubuntu Installation :: Copy Entire /home Directory To 11.04?

Jun 8, 2011

I installed a new 11.04 on my Thinkpad in place of the old 10.10 system, so it replaced the old /home with a new empty one. But I had previously done a partition copy of the original 10.10, complete with /home to a spare HDD so now I can copy that /home in place of the new empty /home. What's the best way to do that? Should I use 'dd'? Should I use Nautilus? Or should I partition-copy that copy of the 10.10 onto available space on the thinkpad 11.04, then manipulate the partitions to consolidate? Maybe create a separate /home partition?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Change Folder / File Permissions On Entire HDD

Apr 17, 2010

I have two drives in my computer: a 160GB and an 80GB. The 80 holds Ubuntu, the home folder, etc. The 160 is for other files. I need to change the read-write permissions on the 160, but I can't. If I do it through the GUI (right-click>permissions) it just changes back instantly. If I do it through the command line (even with sudo), it has no effect.
