I've recently updated my ubuntu to 16.10 from 16.04 . I've ISO image of Ubuntu 16.04 (ubuntu-16.04-desktop-amd64.iso) but I donot have iso image of Ubuntu 16.10. How can create it so that I can share Ubuntu 16.10 with my friends and also as a backup in case I need to install it again in the future.

Thank You in advance...!!

    Why would you want to share your installation with your friends? That seems quite insecure, and possibly problematic depending on hardware. However, Clonezilla can do what you wish to do- creates an image of your system and data. – negusp Nov 1 '16 at 14:58

Maybe you can try SystemBack, here are a few links.



I havn't used it myself but it claims to do exactly what your looking for.
