My new system has a different name than the previous one, and BackInTime doesn't recognize the snapshot files. I'm a novice user of Ubuntu.
I found the config file in the backup and copied it to Home/ .config/ backintime. I opened Settings in BackInTime, and under the General tab, clicked advanced, unchecked 'Auto Host', and changed the Host and User fields to what they were on the previous system, and refreshed the snapshot list, but it still doesn't recognize the backup.
So what steps do I need to take?
Edit - I'm actually just copying the files back now. Because it is called a snapshot, I thought it was like a disk image and you couldn't do that, but the files can be opened. Kind of laborious but not tragic.
