How to backup with "rpi-clone"?

It does live imaging or some sort of equavalent process?

I'll have to check it out :-)

Yes, it uses rsync to backup the live system. 

I don't want to deconstruct the script but this to me feels like living life on the edge.  How well does it assure the clone is self-consistent? I made my backup while moOde was quiescent. What happens if you run rpi-clone while databases are being updated, etc.? 

As for using an option to force completion in the face of errors, that feels like driving my car with a piece of black tape stuck over the engine trouble light. Some people are fine with that; I'd rather resolve what's causing the error.

'nuf said. This is FOSS---use it if it suits.
