Re: Cinnamon to XFCE and a back up and restore question

hey linux mint does not have a backup utility, timeshift is only a tool to take a snapshot of the system that you restore to if the harddrive should crash. your best bet here is clonezilla for backup try that and then make a fresh install from cinnamon to xfce. good luck
