BakAndImgCD: your tiny backup solution


BakAndImgCD is a minimal Linux distro based on 4MLinux for all your backup needs. It comes in an ISO of 20MB (!!!) which is much lesser in bulk than well-known solutions like Clonezilla (128MB). It doesn’t have any desktop environment as the interface is menu driven. Features:

  • Can run from USB.
  • Supports btrfs, ext2, ext3, ext4, FAT, HFS, HFS+, jfs, Minix, NTFS, ReiserFS, and XFS filesystems.
  • Can perform disk imaging using using Partimage, Partclone and GNU ddrescue.
  • Archives and images can be optionally compressed and sent to a remote FTP/SFTP sever or backed-up on USB or optical media.
  • 3 operational modes: selective file backup, automatic file backup, dis image creation.
  • Utility applications include Midnight Commander file browser, Lynx text based web browser and cfdisk or cgdisk partition managers.
  • Open source and free.
