I have a pretty simple question: What is the recommended way of cloning an encrypted Fedora boot drive? (Encrypted using the encrypt option I was given during the installation)
The drive I’m talking about is a 1TB SSD containing all my fedora partitions (and nothing else).
I would like to create a full backup of that system onto an external 2TB HDD.
But I don’t just want to rsync my files from one drive to the other, I want the full drive including the operating system, the encrypted partitions etc. to be cloned onto my external HDD.
The reason is that I want to be able to easily restore my system without reinstalling/reconfiguring in case the SSD goes bad. And also because I want my backup to be encrypted without having to remember another way-too-long password.
So what would be the recommended (if possible open source) way of doing this?
