I am configuring a home folder backup using Ubuntu's built-in backup function and Ubuntu One as the destination.
My home folder is fairly large, and I'm looking for folders that I can exclude without too much of a deleterious effect. That said:
As I understand, Zeitgeist is an activity logger - it has a folder at
~/.local/share/zeitgeist which is large (~1.1 GB). What would the effects of not backing this folder up and having to run a restore later? Would they ever possibly include being unable to use my data?
For the curious, the other folders I am considering excluding are:
~/Trash (default) ~/Downloads (default) ~/eclipse-kepler (binary package only) ~/.wine (losing this would not hurt my feelings at all) ~/.cache
