Backup Synology Partition

Question

Is it possible to backup the Synology partition and all files needed for DSM to run in order to test an update and be safe to always go back to the state in which everything was working just fine by restoring?! Baremetal ofc.

Was thinking to backup via Linux Live Disk. Is there a way or has anyone ever tried that?

You could probably use Linux's inbuilt dd tool to image a partition/entire disk. Don't ask me for the technical details though, there are likely tons of tutorials if you Google for it :smile:
