I've been looking at "Back In Time", "Flyback" and "Timevault" as backup software but I'm having a little trouble deciding on which one to go for.... Can someone tell me which one they found was the more complete application...

I just tar up the home directory and drop it on a different drive.
I also use subversion for the mission critical stuff.

Done this for years, and it has never failed (although I have had massive hardware failures I've always been able to recover).

I just used Remastersys and think its fantastic with Jaunty!
You can make a live CD which also can restore your entire system .

Take a look at - http://maketecheasier.com/backup-ubuntu-with-remastersys/2008/12/22

I found this was the easiest to follow in installing Remastersys - it even can be started fron System > Administration > Remastersys Backup once installed

It has 4 options that all allow ISO images to be burned to DVD and that DVD can also be used as a live CD

Worth a look at - worked GREAT for me!

Good evening

I would suggest that you have a look at Grsync for backing up data.

If you wish to keep of a copy of your OS including your added applications, I agree with a previous reply that Remastersys is a very valuable tool. Try to find the time to look at this website:-
