I need a backup software for Ubuntu 14.04 that has a GUI that can backup my entire system to an external hard drive or network drive. Any recommendations?

  • Do you want to backup your system files? In that case you can take a look at the Ubuntu Software Center option to «Sync between computers» For your personal files and config you can use Dejâ Dup – Ed Villegas May 3 '14 at 4:59

For backing up installed Softwares, preferences, themes & sources, go for Aptik

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install aptik

& for entire system backup refer to this post.


I would suggest rsync, a built in package, but it doesn't have GUI.

You can go ahead with Clonezilla, that's what I prefer.
