Backup and restore: return to the origin of the tool, and meet you brand new!

By the way, do you still have an impression of the "Deep Backup and Restore Tool"?

As one of many deepin original applications, it includes functions of disk cloning, disk backup, disk restoration, partition cloning, partition backup, and partition restoration. It can also cooperate with Deepin Iive system to perform operations such as repairing boot and repairing partitions.

As one of many deepin original applications, it includes functions of disk cloning, disk backup, disk restoration, partition cloning, partition backup, and partition restoration. It can also cooperate with Deepin Iive system to perform operations such as repairing boot and repairing partitions.

For example, when you want to back up and restore data, you must start the live system to perform this operation. And this process is quite time-consuming, and requires multiple restarts, often dissuading many friends who are afraid of trouble; secondly, the use of V20 backup and restore depends on the installation method, and this function can only be used when the whole disk is installed, so that the majority of people use manual installation System users are unavailable.

Under such circumstances, in order to enrich product functions and application scenarios, and optimize product interaction and experience from all aspects, the secondary module of the control center is obviously unable to meet our needs. Therefore, V23 version backup and restore has returned to being a tool application, and also carried out various technological innovations simultaneously.

It seems to have returned to the origin of the "tool", but it will meet you with a completely different appearance!

Technology Reconstruction

The backup and restoration of V23 replaces the underlying data backup method and adopts the new snapshot backup technology, which has the following obvious advantages:

  1. File-level snapshot backup is faster and more efficient than data block copy;
  2. You can run the backup and restore tool on the desktop to complete the backup without restarting to enter the live system;
  3. Incremental backup is adopted. When adding a new backup, only the differential file compared to the previous one needs to be backed up, and the storage space occupied is smaller.

Interactive Optimization

The new version of the backup and restore tool can be summed up in one sentence—it adopts a more concise design to express the product function structure and optimize the interaction in backup and restore operations.

The display of product information is clearer and more concise, and each step provides clear copy prompts and instructions to avoid ambiguity and understanding deviation. For example, in the step of "select backup method", a brief description of system backup and data backup will be given, so that novice users can understand two different backup methods in a targeted manner when installing for the first time.

In addition, since the operation of system backup and recovery involves system and data security, we have also improved security control on this basis. Before performing system backup and restore operations, it is necessary to verify the identity of the system administrator to ensure the user's system security and avoid attacks and damages by unknown users.

Decoupled Release

In the past, friends who used the "manual installation" method to install often encountered this situation: once the system failed, they could not use backup and restore tools to deal with it, so they had to look hard to find a third-party backup and restore tool. Reinstall the system Dafa" to solve.

The new version of backup and restore will be provided to everyone as a system tool application to achieve decoupled release from the system. The new version can be obtained through the application store, without being forced to follow the system iteration, and can quickly iterate through the small version. In terms of maintenance, we can respond to repair and optimization issues faster, and feedback from community partners can be processed in a more timely manner.

Just because it is not affected by the system installation method, whether you choose a full disk installation or other installation methods, you can use the backup and restore tool without distinction.

Rich Application Scenarios

1.system backup

The most basic function of the new backup and restore tool - system backup, is mainly used to deal with system freezes, failures or unbootable scenarios. So, you can use it to restore your system to a working state.

2.data backup

The new backup and restore tool adds data backup scenarios, which are used to back up data in the user's home directory, back up user data to external devices, and ensure the safety of user data off-disk.

3.mirror clone function

In addition to ensuring the security of system data, the new backup and restore tool also provides advanced functions, such as image cloning. It can clone the deepin system into a uimg file, and then install it through the deepin installer, so that the whole machine can be cloned and restored.

After the rebirth, the backup and restore not only returns to the tool application, but also undergoes technological innovation. I hope that its arrival can provide you with richer usage scenarios and a more efficient and convenient backup experience!

Of course, I remember that in order to use this software, I deliberately obtained it from the deepin15 software library
