I am doing a backup of my laptop with the backup utility of Ubuntu 16.04 periodically on a esternal HD.
I am waiting a new laptop, and I'd like to "port" the backup onto it in order to begin using this computer.
I've never done a restore before.
A few doubts I have:
- Will restoring the backup also take care about the various packages and configurations I've done?
- As I am planning to put a small SSD for the operating system, and using the HDD the new laptop already has, should I restore before placing the new SSD or after?
- Is it better to another utility (like e.g. CloneZilla)?
I know these are actually three questions, but they are very much correlated.
I appreciate any suggestion or reccomendation, thanks in advance!
