boot drive backup plan.. dd god enough?
Just wondering if this would work.
My boot drive is a 250gb drive, partitioned with a boot partition and a 20gb root partition, and the rest is for data.
Can I use dd to backup the boot and root partitions to a file image, and then just use that file image to dump onto a replacement disk in event of failure. Does it matter what size the replacement disk is?
Ive only really been backup up /etc and the home folders for now, and had just planned doing a reinstall then restore those, but if I can just dump the backed up partitions onto a new disk, would that probably be easier?
