BACKUP AND RECOVERY SYSTEM IN DEEPIN - PART II

RECUPERACIÓN

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

In this article we intend to show you how to recover your system after a disaster or catastrophic error in Deepin By using a file previously created by the backup and recovery application present in Deepin 20.1 and higher. It should be noted that this tool is only present in systems in which the automatic partitioning option (Use the entire disk) was used at the time of the installation of the Deepin operating system.

SYSTEM RECOVERY

There are several ways to use the Recovery tool in Deepin. In this post we will concentrate on the method through the Control Center. If for some reason you cannot access your desktop and therefore to the recovery system then read this section* of the tutorial to proceed to use the method 2*. Let's get started; To use the backup I explain here how to use it in two ways.

MODE 1

To use it if necessary, you must first have your external hard drive connected (where you saved the Deepin backup), and on the Deepin desktop go to control center, and follow the steps that I leave in the following images, it is very intuitive.

  • 1 Open the control center
  • 2 Click on «System»
  • 3 Click on «Backup and restore»
  • 4 Click on the tab "Restore»
  • 5 Select the radius «Restore from file»
  • 6 Click on the three dots on the right side of the «Backup directory»
  • 7 Select the file previously created with the recovery system
  • 8 Click on «Open»
  • 9 Click on «Restore now»
  • 10 At this time Deepin will ask you for your user password. Enter it and then click "Confirm"
  • 11 You will briefly see a message as in the previous image.
  • 12 At this time a full screen will appear in which you must select "Restart"
  • 13 After restarting you will surely see the options Grub. Do not select anything or press ENTER. The system itself will enter the recovery system.
  • 14 Once inside the system recovery will begin
  • 15 Cuando el indicador de progreso llegue al 100 % entonces la pantalla cambiará indicándote que el proceso de restauración ha terminado. Haz clic en «Reboot Now»

That's all using mode 1. Your system has been successfully restored and you have made your first recovery using the Backup and Recovery tool in Deepin. If everything went well Deepin will restore the copy to the day, month, year, and exact time it was created.

MODE 2

WARNING: Please read this section in its entirety

The second method is practically the same. The difference basically is that instead of opening the backup system from the control center you will open it from the screen of Grub when initializing the system. This mode can be especially useful if for some reason your system crashes after restarting and you cannot access your desktop.

To access the recovery system from Grub just reboot the machine and select it during boot.

From there the steps are the same as in the Mode 1*, except that some of the windows will look a little different. The content and the dialogues however are the same.

In theory there is still an additional method which we have not mentioned and with which you could use Deepin Restore even when you can no longer access the Grub, but we haven't tested this one yet, so we can't attest that it works. However, if you want to use it, keep reading.

Suppose you can't even get to the screen of Grub. Al parecer en ese caso no queda más que reinstalar Deepin nuevamente. Pero aquí está la posibilidad de que después de instalar Deepin desde cero, simplemente abras nuevamente el sistema de Respaldo y Recuperación y entonces selecciones el fichero de respaldo que habías guardado previamente en tu disco externo y entonces sencillamente continúas con los pasos descritos anteriormente con el Mode 1* and restore the system from there.

If you've tried this method and it worked well for you, let us know through a comment at the bottom of the article. Likewise, if you have any questions or if you notice an error of any kind in this tutorial, we would appreciate it if you let us know about it.

Unfortunately, do not do that type of installation. Does anyone know if there is a way to install the recovery system? Thank you.

Hello, unfortunately I do not think it is possible, at least for the moment. However, it seems to me that Deepin does a kind of automatic backup after each update which more or less fulfills a similar function if I remember correctly.

Thank you for part one and two, the tutor is very good. Too bad I don't have it, the next time I install I think I'll use the entire disk.
