Point-and-Click Linux LVM Filesystem Workstation Backup, Part 1 - page 4
Taking Advantage of LVM
Create a directory for the backup content somewhere convenient. Put the following scripts / icons / html content there. I used /home/username/knoppix-mod .
This is the rsync backup script. Change source and LVM volume name where appropriate and destination to match the actual system. Ordinarily, the boot partition is going to be on a non-LVM partition, probably type ext3.

Set up the icon by right-clicking the Desktop and selecting "Link to Application," right-click the icon to open Properties and name the icon start-rsync-mirror. Click the Application tab and enter start-rsync-mirror in the Name field. (Note: if you are doing this for a non-LVM filesystem--omit the LVM part of filename.)
Type the command:
sudo sh /cdrom/rsync_backup-LVM.sh
Now copy the file to /home/username/knoppix-mod.
In Part 2 of this article, you will find the dar backup script and icon setup, the backup GUIsetup, how to get them into a Knoppix .iso, and how to backup and restore.
Solid state disks (SSDs) made a splash in consumer technology, and now the technology has its eyes on the enterprise storage market. Download this eBook to see what SSDs can do for your infrastructure and review the pros and cons of this potentially game-changing storage technology.
