Linux Image Backup: Two Powerful Approaches to Disk Imaging

Linux image backup is a must-do for the ones who want to feel safe about their data, while using the open-source software. Handy Backup has already proved itself a fine Linux backup utility and currently does provide two ways for the reserving full image copies under Linux.

Installation instructions

Linux Image Backup under Wine

The first approach is to run Handy Backup under Wine and enjoy its versatile functionality. The program does the job quite fine, though it might be not the most high-speed operating one. We can recommend this solution for those who hadn’t a chance to use our product as a Linux image backup utility before.

The native Linux version is under development. Just wait a little and you get a monster, cross-platform backup & restore utility, capable of every reserving data task, you can think of!

Linux Disaster Recovery the Simple Way

Another solution we can recommend as a disk imaging software is Handy Backup Disaster Recovery. Comparing to the above Linux backup software, this one is much simpler. The product is intended for system recovery from its full system image. Linux image backup itself is not among the default Handy Backup Disaster Recovery features, but it becomes available after the license purchasing.

Say, you’ve experienced a really bad hard drive crash, but have its’ full backup stored at the external hard drive. In this case, for Linux disaster recovery you just need to create a recovery USB. It should contain the Knoppix distributive and some other stuff to make the recovery process easier (everything is available here, at the Handy Backup website). Then you connect the recovery USB to the computer and follow simple steps to quickly restore your Hard Drive.

Note: Starting from version 8.5, Handy Backup Server Network now includes a workstation specifically designed for the Linux operating system. This allows for smooth integration with the control panel running on the Windows OS, making it easier to create backups for Linux files. Additionally, it's worth noting that the functionality for backing up virtual machines and databases is currently in development. For detailed instructions on setup and usage, please consult the relevant section in the User Manual.
