Today I downloaded and installed Linux Mint 13 my previous system being Mint 12. I thought I was following the procedure indicated in the tutorial at http://comunity.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2 but when I did my backup I used a "Backup" that had a single 'black box (safe?' icon. The result was a folder "MintBackUp" which contains 224 duplicity-full files, 20 duplicity-inc files and 2 each signatures and manifest files as in this screen shot:
When I restore using the correct Backup Tool selecting the folder I end up with the folder and the included files in "michael" which does not work
To me this must be a folder full of archive files but when I select the 'archive' option I only get one file at a time.
1. How do I restore from this backup folder?
2. If it can be done, do I select Overwrite as Never or Always?
Thanks for any clues as ALL my emails and much else is hidden in this "mess"
