You guys have a point of course, however this is the procedure to backup an Arch system with Tar: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Full_System_Backup_with_tar

My method is less complicated for novice/intermediate users I think.

Reason: Uses a half-baked script instead of explaining basic options and referring to the manual, duplication with articles such as Help:Reading, numerous Help:Style issues

...As i was saying.

This is not something I've ever done, most I've ever backed up was my conky or config folder.
With a separate home partition I just reinstall the root using same username so paths are not messed up and all settings are kept the same.
But I did read somewhere that pacman can back up all you have installed like it does with pacman -Q but instead of just listing all your software there is another option to install the same set of software. With the settings still in your home folder and a quick script listing and installing by pacman same as before.

Am I right that pacman can do this? Make a back up list of software and reinstall it after a fresh system install so you don't forget to install a program or something.
