    I know this is an old thread, but I need to get this working from a USB stick, and after I create the USB from the Live CD, the USB boots, but then just sits at a blinking cursor. Is this program not supported any more at all?

      On Which distro you’ve tried? yes the article is little outdated and may not work on latest distributions. Will soon review this article and will try to updated it to the latest…

      I have tried for the past little while (four months or so) to put this on a USB drive. It was a simple enough process with Mint, you use the USB writer and format the USB right? Well did that several times and it gets to the stage where it is supposed to boot and it hangs. Nothing. Tried unetbootin, and same thing. I am starting to wonder since this site is so stale if the image is corrupted. I am as I write this sitting at 7minutes for a 250 mb download. When you consider my download speed is over 150MBPS this should be over with. Another sign something isn’t right. As per other comments something is up, as in not working with this.

    when restoring centos using redo backup, am getting an error the backup has been succeeded but partition table can’t be created.

  3. Vivek Kumar says:


    If I’ve created a ext4 partition of 50GB, then for creating the back-up do I need a space of 50 GB?
    or I will consume only that much space which have been used by the ubuntu-installation & added software on the system now.

    Hi Ravi , thanks for the great site and tutorials! Have a question regarding backups, I have a remote Linux Centos 6.4 root server. What would you recommend for backing up the file system and web sites? If something would happen , crash or virus what would be the best way then to restore? I currently just use daily automated tar backups of the “etc” and “www” directories on a remote FTP backup server.
