Making the backup is always a tricky business for me.
I always tend to postpone the moment, and that’s not a very smart procedure to keep your data safe. Thankfully, from when I discovered backintime the situation is quite different.
Back in time is just a really nice and friendly graphical interface on top of rsync. The good thing is that you don’t have to worry about rsync in any way. The interface has really neat default options, like get rid of your old backup if you are short in space.
After you’ve installed you just have to pick the directory where you want to save your backup and clcik “Take Snapshot”. Then you’re done. Quick and easy.
