backup utility [solved]

Postby mystified » 2017-02-20 11:11

what's the best backup utility you've tried? I have 4 spare partitions plus 400 gbs of unused space. I want to be able my entire system and then restore if anything goes wrong. I''ve googled and checked the repositories, and searched this forum but I'm not sure which ones will accomplish this. Thanks

Clonezilla and rsync are great for entire system backups.

I have also have had good results with dd.
