    Smile Back up utility

    Does the Backup program included with Ubuntu 13.04 only copy files in ur Home folder? or does it back-up everything, including apps and OS? In which case, which folders should I exclude from backing up, in order to save space on my external HDD?

    Thanks for ur help

    I think by default it backs up the home directory, but you can set it to back up any folder.
