Hi manit123
Click on the Control Pamel icon. The Device field should read  sda1/tce   , click Go and the backup should
be created. To shut down or reboot, click on the Exit icon, it will automatically generate a backup first.

As previously advised - I had removed cde & added waitusb=5 at boot.
It dropped me to cmd shell where 'startx'  command was not recognised.

this time I created tce/optional folder in /mnt/sda1 & backed up sda1/tce.
I got mydata.tgz of   1807004 bytes & nothing in optional folder.

should I reboot ?
I think 1807KB is minute in comparison to >100MB tcz files I have downloaded & installed currently.

Hi manit123
Could I suggest you use one of the TC installation utilities. TC is not meant to be installed by third party tools.
Either get yourself back to a GUI and use the tc-install extension to do an install to a fresh pen drive, or if you
have access to a Windows machine, try the  core2usb  utility. You can find a link to that in the FAQs.

currently I have a single pendrive with tiny core installed by unetbootin. No hard disk.
I will make arrangement to make bootable usb using core2usb ASAP.
Then report in this thread.
Thank you.

I have used core2usb.
It seems to be backing up /home & /opt  folder not tcz files I have installed.
Looks like I have to exclusively mention them . But where ?

Hi manit123
Your extensions should be installed under  tce/optional. That is a persistent directory and should not be
included in you backup.

when I selected 'on boot' then go . Then tcz file gets saved in /mnt/sda1/tce/optional & entry gets added in /mnt/sda1/tce/onboot.lst . Can you point me to wiki explaining on-demand option ?

When I select an app to download+load then tinycore downloads all deps even though they have been currently installed .
Why ?
If I copy the tcz,dep & md5sum file to /tmp/tce/optional then will it not download after checking tcz with md5sum ?

The "Size" tab in appsbrowser will show you which extensions will be downloaded.

What makes you think that it's downloading dependencies that are already installed?

The  /tmp/tce  directory is used in conjunction with the copy2fs files to control if extensions should be loop mounted
or loaded straight into RAM. You should not be manually copying files around behind the operating systems back.

see libxml2 already mounted , yet being downloaded.
Ditto for libffi,glib2,shared-mime-info,gdk-pixbuf2,libxcb

Also in ubuntu I used to do the same.
That is copy deb file from somewhere /var/cache/packages . Then OS thinks that previously files were downloaded but could not be installed so it installs them after checking integrity of debs.
