Asked by Colby R.

I've found the backup tool "cdbackup" in the Synaptic Package Manager. But I can't execute it. I've an executable file in /usr/bin.

Can you help? Thanks.

If you use Kubuntu/KDE then you could try "Keep" or "Konserve¨, if you use Ubuntu/GNOME then you could try "sbackup".

I'm going ot be using ubuntu server, the newest release. and its important that i can do exact images or copies, as i plan on using the postfix mail server with 900+ users. so full complete entire backups, or images, and a way to restore them is what im looking for.

For making backup images - use "dd" ( example "dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/mnt/hda2/image-file-for-hda1" )
For restoring one or more files, use "mount" and "cp" ( mount -t ext3 /mnt/hda2/image-file-for-hda1 /mountpoint-of-that-image/ ;
cp /mountpoint-of-that-image/file-x /mnt/hda1/filex )
For complete restoring, use again "dd" (example dd if=/mnt/hda2/image-file-for-hda1 of=/dev/hda1)

Hope I wrote correctly...
