Linux Recovery

As System State cannot be backed up and restored for Linux devices, the following steps can be followed to restore a Linux system:

  1. Reinstall the correct Linux distribution
  2. Install Backup Manager in restore-only mode:
    1. Grant the installer execute permissions

      # chmod +x mxb-linux-i686.run

    2. Run the installer by itself:

      # ./mxb-linux-x86_64.run

    3. Enter the original device name, installation key, and encryption key
    4. Choose option R for restore-only mode
  3. Launch Backup Manager
  4. Restore the files and folders that you want to recover
