I have the OSX side cloned to an ext HD via Carbon Copy Cloner . . . and I've noticed in other ubuntu-esque installs I have there has been a "Back-up" package installed . . . I believe in U-MATE 16.04, but right now my PowerMac Sawtooth is not booting so I can't try it out--but looking through the Lu list I didn't see anything named "Back up."
> I ran a Synaptic search from the Lu and it showed a bunch of packages, including Clonezilla, and rsync . . . I don't have many files that would need to be "saved" . . . what I would like would be a "clone" of the present install, so that I wouldn't have to remember the boot params and run a fresh install . . . but, would like to make a clone of the Lubuntu side of the HD on an ext HD, then when I would need to install a new HD I could boot from the clone and move the install back into a partition of the new HD . . . .  Not sure if that would work as easily as it does from CCC, and/or whether the GRUB data would carry over, but, it might be a time saver if it can be done via some package????
