In short descibe situation
I worked on 9.10 and have a lot customization. one day decided go to 10.04 LTS
Network upgrade showe error (virtualbox-ose-dkms)
have to tell what I have partitions:
80 GB Windows
80 GB Windows
Swap 600 Mb
15 Gb ext4 root
144 Gb ext4 home
when I upgrade manualy I choose:
Use as--ext 4 journaling file system
Format--Not marked
mount point-- root (/)
and choose 144 Gb partition
And now I have 10.04 but on one partition home and root, and to go to old dokuments have to go one folder up home, and then find user name , after that I can diplay my old files.
Is any way to backup all customization what was on 9.10
best regards
