    Backup filesystem Into Ubuntu One

    Hello there,

    I would like to back up my entire filesystem ( / )onto ubuntu one using deja dup which came preinstalled on my ubuntu 13.04. My question is, are there any files/folders that I would like deja dup to ignore while backing up my filesystem?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't recommend just copying your entire filesystem. I think it would be a better Idea to only backup your home folder.

    Yeah but I am worried about when Im installing programs more than once having all these extra folders in the filesystem. I know about $ sudo apt-get remove --purge filename but I am not 100 percent sure it removes all the files. Is there a better way to go about this?

    Code:
    sudo apt-get --purge [packagename]
    will not remove configuration files within your /home directory. However, installing the application a second time will just use the previously created configuration files.
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!
