In previous articles we have talked about different ways to perform a backup and recovery using tools such as TimeShift Y Duplicate. We have also shown how to back up your data in the cloud by using other methods.
Beginning with Deepin 20 The operating system Deepin comes with a magnificent addition built into the same OS, which allows partial or full backups of the operating system and its custom configurations, as well as the rest of the system, for example installed applications and personal data such as photos, documents etc.
This is the method in which we will concentrate on explaining in this first part of a series of two publications on the matter. Specifically, we will deal with how to perform a complete system backup including the operating system and the user's personal data. This module contains everything necessary to make backups and recoveries successfully in Deepin without major efforts or the need for great knowledge on the part of the user.
SUPPORT AND RECOVERY IN DEEPIN
Let's start by making our first backup; To begin we go to the control center and then we carry out the following steps:
After clicking on the three dots, a new window will open where you must choose the disk or partition and the folder where you want to save your backup. Follow the easy steps below:
In step 8, if for any reason you do not have enough space on the disk or partition selected for the backup, you will receive an error message informing you of the situation. If that was your case then you will need to select a different destination for the backup.
Once this is done the system will reboot. Then you will briefly see the options of Grub, do nothing, do not press ENTER. The system will continue with the process and will bring you to a new immersive screen where you can monitor the process and completion of your backup as in the shot below.
It's that easy, you have made your first system backup using the new and great Backup and Recovery tool in Deepin. In a future article we will publish how to recover your system using this utility. The process is more or less the same but in reverse. For details stay tuned for the future post.
