Hello!

Thanks for the tip. I'll give this Systemback a shot.

I miss Windows' System Restore feature not being available in Linux. There are times when it really comes in handy...

What I want for a backup is the ability to copy my entire OS HDD so, if my original OS HDD dies, I can unplug it, plug in the backup and continue like nothing ever happened.

Hi,

You could look at "REDO Backup" for complete offline / bare metal HD & Partition images
http://redobackup.org/

I have been looking at Systemback,
http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/07/install-backup-tool-systemback-1-0-ubuntu-14-04/

It allows you to create windows like "Restore Points"

It also allows you to create a "Live Image" whilst LL is running.
It then gives you an option to create a "Live Boot" USB stick to re-install from.
I've done the 1st Bit, I've tested it "Live Boots" O.K it does...
I now just need to test the re-install option works.

I don't mean to sound impatient since you guys are doing all the work and I'm just sitting here but any idea when this will be complete?

Unknown.

Will this have the option to automatically back up at certain intervals?  (i.e. every Friday @ 2am?)

Not in the first version, perhaps down the line.

It looks OK. :)
add \B to the end of the variable so it will display as 63GB
Code: [Select]
$home_size\BThat's simpler than using sed.
Code: [Select]
echo $home_size | sed 's/$/B/'

Fixed :)

@Valtam
Looking good! 8)

Cheers :)

The proposal looks simple enough for even me to get right - a great idea :)

Re. any web browser and email client back up suggestions, these are already covered via the Home folder backup option.

A function whereby any folder can be right clicked and selected for backup, including its subfolders and files, maintaining the structure/organisation of the files and folders.

This isn't something the Lite Backup interface allows for, we use check boxes. You could use a Thunar Custom Action for that.

One options could be for Lite Backup with Dropbox (or similar) folder sync, as one of the storage destination choices.


Interesting idea, thank you bitsnpcs.
