I was thinking whether it is a good idea to backup of all directories starting with dot in my home folder, so that all settings can be restored if anything goes wrong. I just had an instance when I had to clear the home folder as Ubuntu was not logging in. As my home folder is huge, I don't want to backup the entire thing.
- How can I backup just the .folders.
- Will there be any permission issue when I restore.
Is this a good backup option.
