In order to make safe backups of your Linux install you need to boot into a backup tool like True Image.

This is the bootscreen of True Image 2017 USB version.

And here how to use it:



You can download it here: True Image 2017 USB disk image file 2GB

Use the Linux "Disks" tool to burn this .IMG file to your USB stick. Use the Create Disk Image option in the menu shown below:

It should be an active 2GB Fat32 partition with the LBA and BOOT flag set in the beginning of the drive. U might want to check this using GPART which u can also find on your Linux Live Boot. Or install with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install gparted

what comes around goes around
