Re: [opensuse] Reliable way to backup hard drive before clean install
Le 05/10/2016 à 07:58, Stevens a écrit :

Terabyte drives are under US$50 now so cloning a drive is cheap. Daily
backups are cheap and fast now days. I certainly remember when they
weren't. Etc. But whatever you do, if it's critical data, don't rely on
a compressed tar file. Just IMHO, of course. You do whatever you wish.

the large files do not compress well anyway (jpg and mpg/mp4 are already compressed). Only text files (.txt) do compress and they a rarely large nowadays
