Windows 10 has Volume Shadow Service (VSS) that allows apps like Casper to make full images and bootable clones of Windows disks while they’re mounted and running. Any apps do this for Ubuntu? I want to make images and clones of my main Ubuntu 21.04 drive while it’s mounted and running.
Can this only be done with LVM? Can LVM run on an ext4 / Ubuntu 21.04 system? Or is LVM only for servers?
I’m using Timeshift to take regular daily system snapshots and that’s working great. But I also want to make full images and clones without unmounting my main drive and without booting from a live USB stik.
I read about something called Continuous Data Protection (CDP) and Linux Hot Copy, but it seems they only work on Linux/Ubuntu servers.
