I read about Redo in www.linuxliteos.com/forums/index.php?topic=1561.msg11043 topic. I use Deja Dup to back up my doc, pictures, .mozilla, .thunderbird, etc. but not my desktop settings. Not sure how or if I should backup my desktop settings. I have used these backups moving up in versions of Linux Lite.

Is Redo just a different or is it a better back up program. If Redo is in the DVD drive will it back up to a separate writable CD drive? How big of a USB would I need? Does it need a separate USB from the one that Deja Dup uses?

I do have an external hard drive that my iMac uses with Mac Time Machine. Plenty of room but I do not know if Redo and Time Machine will share it.

Hi Coastie,

Not sure on your DVD questions..

But for your settings backup, look at Aptik

Not sure if I need to change backup program to two programs since Deja Dup is working. I think it will save my desktop but wondering if I should or just set it up again if I reinstall.  :-\

I think the idea behind aptik is just to save settings/configs.
So if you plan to make some changes, it will be a quick backup, rather than waiting for a full deja-dup to do it's job.?

Hello!

Redo works fine on either LiveUSB or CD, and can be used to back up your entire internal hard drive to an external. I do this all the time to back up my dual-boot setups (which almost all of mine are).

You MIGHT be able use Redo to backup to DVD, but I have never tried this. I imagine this would only work if the hard drive itself held less than a DVD's worth of data, as Redo doesn't span volumes.

If what you use now meets your needs to your satisfaction, it's probably best to 'go the course' with it...

I agree, Rob. I should have remembered, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.  8)
