Encrypted Backup

Encrypted backup may be used for security.

Also see Backup.

Include the Bootcode protect

To have an encrypted backup, include the bootcode “protect” in the bootloader.

Changing from Ordinary Backup to Encrypted Backup

If you don't use persistent home and opt, when changing from ordinary backup to encrypted backup, your files may not be loaded. The same may happen when changing from encrypted backup to ordinary backup.

There are various ways to overcome this.

One method is to use persistent home and opt during the changeover.

Another method is to create a directory in /mnt/sda1, and copy all files you want to save to /mnt/sda1, before adding the bootcode protect. After restarting the computer, copy them back to the home, opt and other directories.
