Create image of Linux format

  Diodorus Siculus 08:15 01 Feb 2005

After spending about 16hours updating my linux using YOU (YaST Online Update) I now want to create an image of it. I am dual booting with XP so I will be able to use Ghost if it works on Linux.

Any thoughts? Thanks, Dio.

"Creates IMAGE FILES for an entire DISK, PARTITION or its part. Such image files can be processed like regular disks. "

You could try this; Partition Saving is a DOS program that is used to save, restore and copy hard-drive, partitions, floppy disk and DOS devices. With this program you could save all data on a partition to a file (such as you could save this file on a CD for example). Then if something goes wrong, you can completely restore the partition from the backup file. You no longer have to reinstall every piece of software from scratch. All you have to do is restore the partition from the backup file and then update any software that was modified since the backup was created.

From here click here it's about half way down the page and is freeware, as is most of the s/w on this site.

I've not used it, so you're on your own there.

Hope this helps.
