Redo: backup and restore Linux

In our past articles we wrote about Linux backup/restore/imaging solutions like Mondo Rescue and BakAndImgCD. We came across another easy to use backup solution – Redo. Redo is essentially a 250MB Linux live distro that can boot from USB and take a backup or your system or restore it from a previous image. Redo is very easy to use because of it’s simplistic approach to solve the problem. It is a GPLv3 Perl script built with a GTK2+ interface designed in Glade. The imaging is done by partclone. Features include:

  • No installation needed; runs from a CD-ROM or a USB stick
  • Easy and pretty GUI boots from CD in less than a minute
  • Saves and restores Linux and Windows machines
  • Automatically finds local network shares
  • Access your files even if you can’t log in
  • Recover deleted pictures, documents, and other files
  • Internet access with a full-featured browser to download drivers
  • Drive configuration tools and factory drive reset option
  • Open source and free

Redo comes as an ISO. You can download it from Redo homepage (linked below). Create a live USB using Unetbootin and start backing up your Linux box!
