Does anyone know of a true backup / restore solution for the Z?

Today, if I do a backup, I install zzz somewhere, and I do a restore, zzz will most likely still be there.

I am looking for a solution, where a restore would bring fully back the status as it was before. So everything I have installed BEFORE the backup should be there, but NOTHING should remain from what I have changed / installed after the backup.

Any ideas for a solution?

Thank you. My question was more on the restore side... How can I make a restore so that anything which was installed / changed after I did the backup disappears? If I use tar to compress / decompress, that still wont remove stuff I installed after the backup...

Or am I mistaken?
