Re: Backup installed program

All the programs which you install using Synapatic package manger,apt-get,aptitude have a .Deb file in the following folder


/var/cache/apt/archives

This is very useful when you want to check which version of package is installed on your system and you can take backup of this folder and install all the packages in another machine.

Acronis:it backs up everything - including the operating system and will restore it to your hard drive from an external hard drive; if you buy the boxed retail version (from say Amazon) it comes with a bootable cd, allowing you to boot your pc even when the operating system has crashed. With the downloaded software, you will need to create this recovery cd by following the wizard. Other disk imaging software is available from Paragon, O&O, Norton etc

Re: Backup installed program

hi,
There is no easy way to backup programs in such a way as to make for an easy reinstallation of the programs onto an existing clean installation of the OS. The easy thing you can do is create an image of the system partition and reinstall it rather than reinstall the OS, drivers and apps separately. This obviously won't work on a new system, though.
