BACKUP AND RECOVERY SYSTEM IN DEEPIN - PART I

Respaldo y Recuperación en Deepin

NOTICE:At the moment the Backup and Recovery options explained in this article are not available to all users depending on the way they installed the operating system. These are only available if the option was usedParticionado Automático at the time of installing the system and downloaded the packages deepin-recovery Y deepin-recovery-gui

Notice:This is the first part of this tutorial. For the second partClick here

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:

Respaldo y Recuperación en Deepin
  • 1 Click on the «System«.
  • 2 Then click on the «Backup and Restorer ».
  • 3 At the top select "Backup".
  • 4 Then in the section of «Keep in»Click on the three dots on the left.

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:

  • 5 Select the destination disk or partition.
  • 6 Selecciona la carpeta donde deseas guardar el respaldo (O crea una nueva).
  • 7 Click on «Open" In the bottom right.
  • 8 Once the previous steps have been carried out, then you will see the route of the disk, partition or folder where you selected to save your backup as in the image above.
  • 9 Then click on the button «Backup" In the bottom left.

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.

  • 10 At this time Deepin will require you to enter your password to continue. Just enter it and click «Confirm«.
  • 11 After confirming your password a new full screen will appear where you must either continue with the process or cancel. Click on "Restart".

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.

  • 12 As soon as the indicator reaches 100% of the process, the window will change and will indicate that the creation of the backup has finished and you must click on «Reboot Now»To finish and return to your desktop as it appears in the following image.

NOTICE: At the time of publication of this article, it is not yet possible to create scheduled backups using a pre-established schedule. If you want a tool that allows it, we recommend you review TimeShift.

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.

If you notice any spelling or other errors in this tutorial, as well as if you have any questions or suggestions in this regard, do not hesitate to let us know through a comment at the bottom of this publication.

This option does not appear; I am supposed to have the latest version that was updated, but not the kernel 5.10, is that it?

Hello. In my experience, this function is not available if you use manual partitioning (advanced partitioning) when installing the system.
If when installing you use the partitioning «use all» (the basic / automatic one), you will have available the deepin backup options.

¿A que te refieres exactamente con <> y <>? Lo que yo he notado en una instalación completa, es que tienes la herramienta que se menciona en este artículo, dentro de las opciones del sistema. Y al encender la máquina hay una opción de <> para restaurar el sistema y conservar o no datos personales.
So, I don't know if we would be talking about the same thing. Or if the other option you mention is an alternate or previous version of deepin that I do not know.

kkblownt ... I am referring to installing "the same deepin" on two different machines.
a) in a machine it appears to me the old "recovery"… And lets me use it.
b) in the second machine appears the new "restore" and also lets me use it.
 
it seems to me than option a) It is obsolete, I have noticed strange things when doing the backup process.
What I don't know is how it was installed on my first computer ... 😳

Sorry for these symbols "<>" I did not notice that the words were replaced by these. It said, what did you mean by old recovery and new restore. And the one that appears when I restart is called restore. So I wondered if it wasn't the same. But, it seems that there was one previously, which I do not know. Could you show me a screenshot of the "old man"?

You're welcome! When I realized this, I tried to replicate the automatic partitioning that deepin does with an installation doing manual partitioning, to see if it was possible to have these tools available.
I was only able to replicate some partitions due to limitations of the partitioning of my disk partitioned in MBR and having to share with win. Logically I focused on the partitions that it makes of: (root 15 GB) and (recovery 15 GB) the one of home and swap it is worth mentioning. And in the absence of knowledge and avoiding spoiling the win installation, once the system was installed, I did not get the desired result of having the tools enabled. It would be nice to find this to work with manual partitioning.

Brandon, I have deepin on two machines, the first one has the "previous" deepin recovery and in this miniPC that I write about, there is the "new" deepin restore, both machines are fully updated ...

what if I noticed that when I backed up in old deepin recovery they were erased ... unless I saved them on an external usb device ...
