MintBackup

Postby fwc on Mon Apr 20, 2009 10:25 am

Hey, I was just wondering how one can roll back from the MintBackup utility. I went from using about 35% of my partition (30GB) to about 50% so I was wondering how to remove the image (or whatever files) and get back the space without damaging anything. Thanks very much!

MintBackup saves to your /home partition; I believe it's in the roadmap to allow you to choose another destination for it. Right now, what I do is to cut-paste the finished MintBackup archive onto an external media, like another harddrive, a CD or a USB stick. That way it's off my /home, and is available for use when I need it. Does this help?

Yes, that seemed to help, thank you. Are you sure there aren't any other folders or settings it changes?
