Systemback is a tool for restore points and Live System creation, not a data backup program, per se.  Linux Lite already comes with the backup program, Deja Dup, herein rebranded simply as the Backups program (Menu -> Accessories -> Backups).

Hi @torreydale
I know what systemback is and what it does, that's why I said that I didn't know if Aptik could qualify as an alternative since both programas are quite different. What I meant is that I'm not able to make systemback to save to my external drive, is it possible?

I don't know if this qualifies as an alternative to systemback, but I just reinstalled LL and used Aptik to restore all of my settings and most of my data; pretty fast and very easy to use. The feature I like the most is the fact that I can save to an external drive, which if you ask me makes more sense than saving to the same drive the backed up OS is in. I'm not able to do this with systemback, maybe I'm missing something not sure, is it possible? I also tried Timeshift but it takes way too much space on the HDD, I know data can be excluded but I'd prefer not to mess with that but rather that the backup program handles it by itself. Back in time looked nice but I found it kind of confusing; always complaining about something I can't remember now. I also tried Grsync, a rsync GUI which also features the ability to save to an external drive and you can run a simulation before the real deal, so you can check everything will be fine before proceeding with the backup process. Grsync wast fast and easy to set up, even though I kind of missed something and the backup didn't go as I expected :(. I will try it again after reading and/or watching any tutorials I find. In brief, I really liked Aptik ease of use and performance, I'd say is quite a very good alternative when it comes to backing up your data.  :)

What about duplicity??? For an. Alternative?


God Not dead.

What about back in time? Have a nice gui, haven't tried it yet though but as soon as I do I will report back to you. Here's the link check it out https://github.com/bit-team/backintime
