Is that possible make a disaster recovery for linux ? If yes how pleasE?

I see there are many partitions on linux. Should I install linux and restore every partition one-by-one?

I don't try to rely on Retrospect to do a disaster recovery. I just tar the entire root minus the data. For recreating the partitions, I use sfdisk -d to save the partition layout to a file, which can be used to restore them inside a LiveCD environment.

Thanks for reply.

I am not very good at linux. But sfdisk -d sounds very reasonable. Ok after saving partition table and took full backup of all partitions, for disaster recovery, should I first restore the partition table and restore every partition from full backup?

Would be very usefull and I want to test it locally.

thanks in advance.
