Revision [28068]

Additions:
====PUDD copy drive/partition====
This can be found under the Utility menu group in most Puppys and can be used for backing up directories/partitions/drives. It has step by step instruction, but it could be good to add some more information there. You may have to start with a live CD (Like if the Puppy save file is on the partition). Some HDDs can be configured so that when choosing a partiton, you wind up with two partitions on 2 rows and can't continue.
Some snags one can experience when backing up a partition to a file:
The partition to be copied must be UNmounted. But when you are choosing when to put the saved zipped file, the partition where you place it must be MOUNTED to find it (go below ROOT, choose MNT and find your partiton. You can change the name MYFILE.IMG to something more descriptive before clicking OK).
Once it's working it says "wait very patiently". Example a 70 GB partition gZIPed took 36 minutes and created a 0,7 Gb file (the original partition was not very full. So it can take MUCH longer)

====How to backup savefile when shuting down for frugal:==== http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=55420
The way it works is this. On shutdown, there is a query asking whether you want to back up the pupsave. If you say "y", it backs it up in a previously specified location; there are as many backups there as you want to specify (for example, if you want the 4 latest backups, when you do a new one the oldest one already there is deleted). After the backup is finished, the shutdown completes. If you say "n", the shutdown simply completes as is normal. If you say nothing (for example, you've walked off after telling Puppy to shut down), after 20 seconds it times out and completes the shutdown without backing up.
====Simple Script to Backup savefile every "time interval"(fully automatic/run in background):==== http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=495560
-Put this into /root/Startup, so i wont have to care about backing up again!
-Configure time interval between save.
====Snap2 rotating snapshot backups for Puppy:==== http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=50402
-If you would like to keep 'snapshot's of your files (or, usually, a subset of your files) as they were hours ago, days ago, weeks ago, etc., this program will do that, automatically "spacing out" the backups over time.
-Thanks to the use of hard links, it can keep several gigabytes of files on a one-gig USB drive, without compression. Your backups are accessed as ordinary directories and files.
-It can also do backup to a remote server. Thanks to the hard link trick, duplicate files (from one backup to another) are "copied" without using disk space. And thanks to rsync magic, only changed portions of files are transmitted.
-You access and browse your backups just as you would ordinary directories and files, with any file manager. Despite the huge savings in disk space through the use of hard links, no compression is used. This allows you to easily inspect backup files and compare one version of a file with another.
