I res-erected this subject because I am still trying to create a backup of my system before too much junk gets installed.
When this was discussed before there were nearly equal numbers who said they were not necessary and others who said they were.
No real consensus and maybe there will never be. I just do not know however I believe in back ups. Initial back ups and periodic incremental as well.
There are a number of tools/programs developed by linux developers but some independant research by a few members has shown that many of those tools are not very good.
Any way I down loaded a Kaspersky rescue ISO now I need to create a potable media to run it from.
Later guys an gals back to the drawing board. lol
