Hello Maddy,

If you can afford downtime, that Offline backup would be the best option.

But what does the filesystem snapshot. I am no expert in linux. Can we find the documentation on how to take filesystem backup?

Filesystem snapshot is the state of a system at a particular point in time. Offline backup should be taken by someone who is a Linux expert and should be tested by trying to restore it.

If you are not a Linux expert, your best bet is Online backup which requires the least amount of Linux expertise. Check the "AEM Online Backup" at [1] for more details.
