Hi Gottfried,

yes, making a backup is good.

You will want to backup the Guix configuration files and your data.

So probably this means you should copy /etc/config.scm and the files in
your home directory.

You could plug in an ext4-formatted external disk and copy the files
with the “cp -a” command.  Or learn to use a complicated backup tool
like borg, which other pages on the web explain better than I can.

However, note that installing Guix on the same disk as another operating
system will only be easy if you are using grub-efi-bootloader and if
your computer has an OS selection tool built in or if you have installed
something like rEFInd.
