1. I don't have a computer! Indeed! The forgotten masses of Ubuntu! Well, not forgotten here... ;-) The others might wonder, but you and I know: You might not have the big bucks to buy your own computer, but you've got your own personal computer safely tucked away on your USB stick/pen drive/SD Card/external HDD or even just simply your phone/tablet... ...

I've been doing this for years. I'm writing now from a PC which does not even contain an internal hard drive. I don't even carry a laptop, just this high performance USB flash media. I will now outline the two components you need to buy if you want decent performance. Most flash drives are too slow for most people, and they can also become unstable due to ...

This should be possible; your flash drive just needs to have enough memory for the OS and whatever files you'll be using. The limitations are based on the flash drive and/or the computer you run it (but most likely the read/write speed of the flash drive will have a larger impact on speed). The stick is used as memory similar to any other harddrive in a ...

Just modify the command. The actual command is juju backup create. It will definitely work.

Yes, this is completely possible. First and foremost, you will need at least 2 USB ports available, or 1 USB port and 1 CD-Drive. You start by booting into a Live-CD version of Ubuntu with your hard-drive where it is and the target device plugged into USB. Mount your internal drive and target USB to any paths you like. Open up a terminal and enter the ...

There is no default location. I would not use any of the regular directories for this. Keep the server clean from outside backups and put those is a clear defined location. Most likely I would use a removable disk and mount it. Something like /external_backups/ or /media/external_backups/ and inside that subdirectories with the server name and inside ...

Brow, i was facing the same problem than you. I did the following: I deleted all from backup then i created a new backup without password. Right now (12-31-2014: 08:16), Deja Vu Backup is restoring all my files from my notebook to my desktop. I don't know if the problem was the password, or if was some corrupt file. However, it's working. This is the only ...

You can always open notes with any text editor, like Gedit, Ubuntu's default. Just right-click on the .note file then select Open With Other Application... and find Gedit. To get all your notes back and viewable on a fresh install of Ubuntu, you can install Tomboy and then place all the notes you backed up in .local/share/tomboy within your home directory. ...

I'm adding ANOTHER ANSWER to answer your OTHER QUESTION, which you added to your first question after I offered my original answer, chosen above: you wrote: Update: Thanks so much for the thoughtful responses! At this point, I'm wondering how I should go about keeping my system backed up to a bootable external drive. What you are asking can be ...

If I understand you right, you do not have a full win installation cd/dvd, because win was preinstalled when you bought the machine? Maybe you would like to clone your current hdd with windows onto a separate drive (second internal hdd or usb hdd for example)? This way you keep exact the same system with all programs and data you have now. You just would ...

It does not work because you did not install a boot loader on the new disk. Grub typically occupies the first 64k of the disk, so you need to dd that much if you want to copy grub. Then grub looks for your root or boot partition by UUID, so if you formatted a new partition and copied your files, that will not match so grub will stop and wait for you to ...

What about using a downloaded tool to professionally clone the entire hard disc? You might look at this question where I tried to describe this to another user an provided some links: click me The question is currently marked as "on hold" because it is a bit off-topic, but it will remain accessible as far as I know.

In your home folder (~ , usually /home/<username>) the .config folder has lots of config files for many programs (some use other "hidden dotfiles" that begin with a dot, like .xxxx folders or files, also in the home folder) and often the desktop / display manager settings too. If you wanted to back up your whole home folder that would be a good idea ...
