but how do you test this restore? For data it's pretty easy to
restore in a temporary place, but for system?

I'm sure there are more knowledgeable / sophisticated methods available
but I just install the replacement drive and partition it (first 'dry
run.') Then I restore, chroot in and run the bootloader installation.
I use the same method to migrate installations to larger hard drives.

yes, but this needs acces through an opther install or rescu disk, and most rescue disks are short in tools

what I asked is did you test your last backup method?

locally (as desktop), I never really backup system. I case of failure, I reinstall the newer distribution, but I have a hosted server (two, in fact) and I maintain rsync backups, but restoring is not easy, and tsting the restore even less.

In real, the only case I tried to restore a system, I failed :-(

Back to the "only root can do that" problem!

AFAIR there is a solution around fuse, but I don't had problem
mounting a dvd as user recently

I don't think this is germane.

I answer this question:

Back to the "only root can do that" problem!

the answer is fuse:

generally speaking, it shouldn't happen in 13.1
