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

Hi,

fsarchiver is an alternative tool that will do what you want:

http://www.fsarchiver.org/Main_Page

This will backup and restore the partition file-system, it's pretty easy to use and works really well. It has some very nice features too. Have a read through the pages on the website and if you have any questions I'll be happy to help if I can. The best way to use it is to get the latest version of SystemRescueCD, which includes fsarchiver and all the file-system tools it needs:

http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page

One very nice feature is that it can restore to a partition that is smaller than the partition you backed up, just as long as there is room for the actual data.

Can this tool also write the backup directly via a (W)LAN network to another computer?

I'm using redobackup it's great
http://redobackup.org/
Not for me.......
After a "Click on the box below to select the source drive that you would like to create a backup from" .... nothing is happening.
And thus I can't select the destination drive.

No, not that I'm aware of.

Yes, it does. Just the thing for swapping between different versions of Pardus to compare stuff, and of course, for partition backups. I'm impressed with just how quick the restore operation is.

Pmagic has File Roller 2.30.0 on board and maybe it's equivalent to  FSArchiver Huh?

I FSArchiver to backup a partition of your disk.
Does this mean it's more equivalent to Clonezilla and/or Ghost 4 Linux (G4L)  Huh?

Apart from the speed, what are the advantages compared to Clonezilla/G4L Huh?

For example:

Ability to restore the filesystem to a partition which is smaller than the original.

Ability to restore the filesystem to a partition which is bigger than the original without resizing.

Checksumming of the data and ability to restore corrupt archives, it will skip the corrupt file.

Ability to encrypt the data with a password.

It can restore the data on a different file-system, it creates this on restore, if wanted.

It can save multiple file-systems in one archive .

Ability to do multi-threaded compression.

Thanks for the info
I am saving/restoring an image via (W)LAN to/from a /home/partimag directory on my main computer almost daily.
This is because the main computer has sufficient disk space to accommodate the (large) image files.

You're welcome atolboo. Though it seems that fsarchiver is of no use to you at the moment because it doesn't (as far as I can see) work across a network. Maybe something for the future if the author implements such a feature.

That's the reason I am using Clonezilla/G4L (available on Pmagic) Grin
