backup your server

Unread post by prophy » Sat May 11, 2019 7:22 am

Hi all
I'm using Odroid-HC2, wanted to know if anyone have a backup method for ubuntu 16.04 on the microsd card.

Want to backup the entire OS, minus the SATA/External harddrive files, onto another SDCard.

Maybe into an .img file so that i can use Etcher to restore the file onto a SDcard?

any recommendations?

Code: Select all

dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=/path/to/backup bs=1M
Ideally this should be done when not booted, or single user mode to prevent writes when backing up.
