SubVersioN is considered the best alternative tool for backing up VM operating environments. Adding one would defeat the purpose of Whonix. From the command line run: See Support.
Act like you are burning a data disk with Brasero, and it gives you the option to create an iso. Live mode is not amnesic; in particular, memory forensics has not been taken into account! It is free.
Edits are held for moderation. Open a terminal. Similar to VirtualBox's snapshot capability, SVN also takes into consideration differences in files -- both textual and binary -- from version to version. When you are finished, unmount each of the mount points. According to the Firejail project page: It will make you feel more secure. Create a mount point and mount the Whonix Workstation image.
If live mode is used with Whonix-Gateway, regularly booting into persistent mode is important to keep Tor's normal guard rotation schedule. Additionally, SVN also handles sparse dynamic virtual hard disk files, an option VirtualBox offers when instantiating new virtual disk drives.
These methods reliably provide VM backups, but disk resources are used inefficiently and manual versioning is required. Cannot provide instructions here spontaneously.
Sort by date Sort by score. I knew nothing about udev! It uses the VirtualBox access library to open a VirtualBox supported image file and mount it as a Fuse file system. Type mkdir temp mkdir temp in the terminal. You may reboot and then shutdown the newly installed Debian.
Simply press Enter to boot the live system and use it as normal. Let the command do its thing and then boot from the USB.
To increase security, the VM disks can be set to read-only. Please help improving this. In Qubes-Whonix , this is useful in anon-whonix. Particular care must be taken that clean and unclean states are never mixed up!
