Mephisto Backup is a simple backup program written in Java that wraps around TAR.

This program can do simple backups and syncs over a network or locally.It uses tar and rsync in the background. The key feature of this program is the ability to backup your system to an image and copy it to a Linux Live DVD for future restoration. The user can then take that cd and move his or her system to any PC.

How to run: cd into the folder, cd dist, java -jar *.jar.

How do I re-image a machine?

1. Add your backup file to a live cd using isomaster.
(Mephisto Backup 1.1 does this for you)

2. Boot the Live cd.

3. Format your partitions.

4. mount and extract the backup file.

5. mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev

mount -o bind /sys /mnt/sys

mount -o bind /proc /mnt/proc

chroot /mnt

6. Use mkinitrd to generate a fresh initrd image

7. grub-install /dev/sda
