    Default How to Backup and Restore Backtrack From a External Disk (USB Key)

    Hola!

    Since we may have to reinstall many times after playing with configurations..
    I would like to know, what is the best way to backup AND restore your data?

    with os x and timemachine EVERYTHING is backed up and recovered easy.

    Is there a way to do this in bt4?

    I mean so I can have all my customizations looking the way I left them?

    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    You can also check out my blog on using DD or DCFLDD for such a purpose.

    I use Clonezilla...and it works pretty good.
