I'm looking for a safe option for taking an image of my machine cuz I'm in a place where I cannot risk trying anything isn't safe and the machine must be up and running. For example, clonezilla looks a good option but I haven't tried it before and I cannot risk booting from a live CD on the same machine.
I'm looking for a solution for the issues I came across with VMware Converter or any other suggestions. In this post I want to ask you guys what do you think of the following idea:
Creating a virtual machine of Ubuntu using VMware Workstation.
Backing up my folders of the origial server using backintime-gnome http://backintime.le-web.org/
Restorung these folders on the new VM
