[Resolved] New Silvia Backup Tool

Post by scubapro25 » Thu Dec 14, 2017 5:02 am

I'm very happy with the newest version of Mint, Silvia, 18.3--but, one tool baffles me: it's the latest upgrade to the old Mint backup tool.

1. I first created several snapshots of the system

2. But, then, when I went back, several days later, to restore them, the tool simply asks you where you keep your snapshots (so, I indicated the appropriate external drive) and it successfully drilled down through the various shapshot dates, but then, when it reaches the 'bottom,' ie: the file system, selecting Home doesn't do anything. At that point, there is no 'restore' button.

Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.


Solution-->: I discovered that I was using the old backup tool and you have to be in the Timeline tool to actually restore backups. Duh!
