I currently run Xubuntu 19.04 on an old HP laptop. Due to overheating, the laptop crashes frequently and due to this, files occasionally get corrupted.
Files that have been corrupted:
- .zsh_history: I've fixed this and made a small script to automate this answer here.
Firefox data: I now use the snap version + Firefox sync.
Whisper menu: This is mainly why I made this post. Just yesterday, I clicked the whisper menu, and then the laptop crashed suddenly. On booting up, I find that the config has been corrupted. (Size of icons, and favorite applications have gone back to default)
Therefore, my questions are: Where are the XFCE UI settings stored, or more generally, What are important files that are a good idea to back up?
