Ubuntu – Making a snapshot of ubuntu


I installed ubuntu without LVM. Is it still possible to make a snapshot of it? If so how can I do it? Keep in mind I never made a linux snapshot before.

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Kernel 4.5

According to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lvm

"(Snapshots) is something you simply can not do without LVM"

But not all hope is lost if you have an external hard drive or a file server some where on your network you can use imaging software like http://clonezilla.org/ to create images of your machine and restore to them as your require.
