Hi, my pardus sytem is up and running, but I still would like to play around with other distros like Bodhilinux. For that reason I would like to ask if there is a method to fully backup the current pardus sytem, eg. in a disc image or something of the short, so that after finished, I could just reload the system I use now. This is becouse I only have a 15Gb partition free. Furthermore, how can I restore pardus boot after that?
Thanks

Parted Magic is an excellent tool for this.
To make a backup of a complete disk or a partition, it has Clonezilla (my preferred one) and Ghost 4 Linux.
To make an image on a remote computer, I always use Clonezilla > ssh_server > etc.
It does the job
You can also make an USB-version (~ 200MB needed ) with Unetbootin (available from 2. Additional (non-official) package source: pardususer.de).
With the remark that I use pmagic-6.1.iso to make the USB-version as later versions will not start from USB.
That's my experience Grin

And I just used Ghost 4 Linux to copy a 1TB disk to a 2TB disk (lasted 2.5 hours).

Thats just what I need, thanks! But how am I going to restore grub? I heard about the inconsistency of Pardus with Ubuntu distros becouse of different grub usage...

But how am I going to restore grub?
the Restore Grub Wiki.
And the new P2011.1 installation DVD/USB also has the Rescue System option.
I didn't try it yet

Pardusman is supposed to create customized install cds, so if you reinstall your system, or want to bring it to another computer, you will have all your programs you want & all theme settings you used, but still has a completely fresh system... its like remastersys for the buntus. Or Im just getting something wrong... Smiley

Is 100%

.....so if you reinstall your system, or want to bring it to another computer, you will have all your programs you want & all theme settings you used, but still has a completely fresh system...
I don't agree with this ^^^^.
You can only do
....... & all theme settings you used,
by making an image with Clonezilla (available on Pmagic) and then restore the image to the other computer.
The individual setting are stored in /home/username/.kde/...

I >It is simply a front end to partclone, which performs the actual backup and restore.<
This ^^ is also used by Clonezilla (available on Pmagic) Grin

And further:
Redo Backup and Recovery is an Ubuntu-based live CD featuring backup, restore, and disaster recovery software.

And as you can in Bug 18912 Comment 2,  a fix is already on the way
And they also changed the title of Bug 18912.
And after this new version of syslinux is available the official repo, it's again possible to make an USB version of Pmagic in UNetbootin (its in the Distribution list of UNetbootin).
