My question is, what is the recommended procedure of taking a full
backup on a live system? Ideally, if my hard drive were to crash, I
would like to have such a backup so as to make it possible to copy
over the entire backup to a new identical harddrive without doing any
reinstall or configuration. Should I use tar/gzip? dump? What exact
command should I use?
dump(8) with the -L option will take a snapshot of a live filesystem and
then back that up.
