Running a distribution of Linux on your laptop or desktop is a lot of fun, but that’s not all Linux can do. Using the “live mode” of a distribution can assist you with recovering data from a PC that won’t boot. In this video, Jay shows the process of booting a distribution in live mode to assist in the process of recovering files. As long as your hard disk hasn’t totally failed, this process will enable you to copy its data to an external USB drive.
Proxmox Backup Server is a custom Linux distro that you can run on your server to have it serve as a backup endpoint. It integrates quickly and easily with Proxmox Virtual Environment, making it a great solution to back up your virtual machines and containers. In addition to that, it can also be used to store non-VM backups too, so running Proxmox Virtual Environment is NOT a requirement. In this video, I’ll teach you everything you need in order to get started with Proxmox Backup Server.
