I wonder if there is a solution (or how to tweak such a thing using for example freebsd or something) to have "screen shot back ups" like in MAC's time machine feature to restore all my ubuntu account settings/avatars/home files etc with as little hassle as possible (and also take a record of the state of my computer frequently without me bothering manually doing so)

I dot mind laboring to set it up so I am open for ideas I just want the end result to work seamlessly and as effortlessly as possible.

If you dont know what mac time machine is then please google or watch a video on youtube to get the idea because thats what I am shooting for.

Thanks in advance.

  • “screen shot back ups” Do you mean snapshots and incremental backups with 2 clicks restore (as is the default on Ubuntu) or do you mean a graphical exploration like in the file manager? – Andrea Lazzarotto Sep 4 '17 at 10:11
  • both I think I found the software I was looking for its this one: rastersoft.com/programas/cronopete.html I just did not set it up yet because I am waiting for the hard drivers I ordered to arrive and then Ill build an NAS with them which I will use for my back up purposes as well. – papajo Sep 5 '17 at 10:07
  • Sounds cool! Can you please post a self answer when you have set it up? Thanks. – Andrea Lazzarotto Sep 5 '17 at 12:49
  • Any news on this? – Andrea Lazzarotto Oct 27 '17 at 12:37
