    Exclamation Backup Error

    Hey guys, so I finally have 12.04 setup the way I like it so I'd like to make a backup of it...I am trying to use Deja Dup which came preinstalled, to backup my home folder to a NTFS drive that is mounted at boot I have read/write access to but I get the error below:



    Note that the directory does exist, and this was previously working under 11.10 (deja dup + same harddrive and directory)

    Re: Backup Error

    Try removing the / at the beginning of the backup location.
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Dual boot or use VMs if you want. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.
