Back up tool

Postby ryoji » Wed May 19, 2010 10:17 am

I'm upgrading to Mint 9 from 8. Used the back up tool to save my home folder which resulted in a little briefcase icon that I then saved on an external drive. However, when I try to restore my home folder all I get is a screen that says please wait....calculating. But nothing happens. Did I miss a step? The little icon shows 8 plus gigs of data, so something's there. It just won't unpack.

How long did you leave it? With 8GB+ it's going to take a while to calculate.
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

I'd say over half an hour easy.
