I have a basic question related to Back In Time backup program and the procedure of the restoration process. As far as I understood, Back In Time allows me to create a one-click snapshot of my entire root system (I only need / and not /home) which can then be restored to give me an exact replicate of the system at a given point in time.
So, let's say I save this snapshot on my external hard disk and my system crashes then, i.e. it no longer boots. Thus I cannot launch Back In Time to restore the snapshot.
How would I proceed in this case?
Is it possible to boot from a live disk, install Back In Time and then launching Back In Time in the live environment to restore my system with one click?

Thank you teateawhy,
In the link you provided they talk about a fresh installation. I was more talking about a live environment from which to restore the snapshot.
Thus, I would assume that it is not possible from a live medium.
But if anyone knows more, please let me know.
It seems to be possible. There is an answer in the launchpad forum: https://answers.launchpad.net/backintim … ion/224535
