I would use Clonezilla to image the entire hard drive as it is right now, if you want everything backed up as it now is. IF you want just certain things, like /home and the .hidden folders, then make them viewable) and then use Simple Backup (sbackup) which can be installed via the Software Center or from the terminal, sudo apt-get installsbackup - Read this for details: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Backu ... ackupSuite
