Backup Solutions for Linux

After an exensive review of linux backup solutions I decided to go with TimeShift. I have yet to need to restore anything. But the ease of use and range of options won me over. I was a big fan of Apple’s TimeMachine when I was a Mac user. I use it to backup my whole machine.

Cronopete ((Review]( is another interesting option. Which I might try in the future after I change to my next Linux Machine. Cronopete is not desiged for backing up the whole machine, only the user folder. This is a problem for me as I have stashed all sorts of files all over the OS. In my next iteration I need to be more diciplined about moving web server tools into packages like docker.
