Bare Metal Recovery

Complete backup and recovery, A.K.A. bare metal restoration, is the art of restoring a system from the ground up. I have an article on the subject at 79 Linux Journal 104.

This page is the home page of the Linux HOWTO based on that article.

You can get it at the usual LDP sources. Or you can read it from this server.

In addition, if you want a local copy, you can have it in these formats. All are compressed with bzip2.

If you have problems grabbing the files below, you can edit your mime types. They are mime type application/x-bzip2, with extension bz2. In Netscape and Firefox 2 you can hold down a shift key while you click on the link.

The current version is 2.8.

To ensure that you got a good download, validate the files against the checksums above. The easiest way to do this is to pull in the sha1sum or md5sum files (or both), and run the appropriate program against it:

sha1sum -c sha1sums


md5sum -c md5sums
