How can I create a .iso (USB) of my current system?

Is there a way to create a live-usb without downloading the iso files from the internet. Actually, I am using lubuntu on my PC but I don't have the ISO with me anymore; so I wanted to know how can I create a live-usb from the installed OS(Lubuntu) on my System.

I am trying to avoid downloading the isofile.

Any help is much appreciated.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

There is probably no way that can be done, at least in the present scenario. You either need to download the iso from the internet or buy a CD/DVD/USB, which can be procured at very low prices, even for free, though officially Canonical has stopped shipping them to your home for free.

Even with the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator you need to download the ISO. There is no way to make a live-USB without the ISO.
