View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upgrading issues and backup

March 29th, 2013, 11:25 PM
Hey everyone

I turned on my ubuntu laptop after couple of months and saw there were a lot of updates and stuff as well as ubuntu 12.10 is out and since I like new shiny stuff :KS i would like to upgrade :P but the thing is when ever i try to run the upgrade it gives some errors then rolls back, so I have decided I would like to do a fresh install on it and I already burned a DVD with the image on it.

I have used the backup utility that comes with ubuntu called deja vu and backed up my /home, /etc, /var, and /opt folders to my external drive. I wana know if those are the folders that have all my settings on them with the applications because I dont want to loose my applications, settings, and documents.

thank you.
