Remastersys is the solution. You can make backup with all data of your home folder.

Take a look at with this you can backup your installed programs to cd (no live version). For your files you might want to take a look at Deja Dup ( ) it will be the new standard backup tool in ubuntu 11.10

AptonCD only works when your package is saved in /var/apt/cache folder. If you clean you packages, then AptonCD won't work – user May 13 '11 at 14:18
