Would someone please tell me if it is possible to use Back in Time
to backup directories under root, such as /etc, /usr, /var, and how I could do this?
According to the website How-To Geek
, in its article of April, 2012, entitled, How to Back Up Your System with Back in Time “Back In Time installs two shortcuts – “Back In Time” and “Back In Time (root). The root version runs with root permissions, which are required to access and back up certain system files.”
(This article is specifically referencing the use of Back in Time
Some years ago, I started to investigate Back in Time
, and at that stage when it was installled on PCLOS
, (from memory) there appeared two entries in the main menu (Back in Time
and Back (root)
). Back in Time
, on my current system however, does not display the Back in Time (root)
option/entry. Has this been removed from the application in the repository?
I have used Deja Dup
successfully, to backup (daily) /home, /etc, /usr and /var (I have excluded some recommended files/folders – e.g. tmp folders), but I prefer the Back in Time
Any advice will be much appreciated.
