I am making my first backup.
I understand that you can save the backup file in the virtual machine of your choice. By default, I see that it is in dom0.
So I created a “backup” folder in my personal documents (on dom0).
I imagine that afterwards the backup file can be copied to the place of my choice? for example, on a USB key or on the cloud?
I’m a bit worried that my encryption password will be saved in clear text on dom0, if I save the default settings. Given that, in principle, dom0 is completely secure, is this really a serious security issue?
Now the backup is finished: the file is in my backup folder. I didn’t restore it, because I read that the restored files would be installed in a sub-folder of dom0. I prefer to avoid losing space on my disk…
So I will regularly (probably every day) make a backup of my system, because I will probably work on it during a whole week, to install all my working environment.
I also make a backup before each delicate operation: for example, if I make updates.
Am I doing it right?
