Backing up with internal HD


Hi all,

I have a computer with two hard drives, a SSD as well as a hard drive that is currently empty. The idea is to back up the SSD with all of my files using the internal hd but I've been running into trouble figuring out how to do so.

Thoughts are using Déjà Dup and storing setting storage location to be '/dev/sdb', but any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,

SF

There are plenty of ways one might use and manage backups. No one is really perfect but all are better than nothing.

Your distro packages may have a few choices on how to backup.
You might be able to use raid and make real time copies.
There was a free live state backup that I forgot the name of.
You can simply make cron jobs to make file based backups of changed data or all user data.

Others will have some ideas too I suspect.
