My favorite for backing up the DATA partition is grsync (a gui frontend for rsync).

Back again, folks! Since my last posting, I have been doing much research on alternatives to Déjà Dup, both for backups and copy/paste file and directory transfers. I have decided to go with Grsync, as per austin.texas's kind recommendation and as described in his excellent tutorial. Thanks, Dan! I found it most useful, although actually I do have a few Grsync-specific queries which I shall be raising in a separate Mint post, lest I be reprimanded by the Mods for going off-topic!

So, in the interim, my grateful thanks to yourself (austin.texas), and also to fungus, phd21, Hoser Rob, Joe2Shoe and jglen490 for your most helpful, collective kind inputs.

FOOTNOTE: Another replacement for Déjà Dup well worth considering is the little-known German Ukopp programme, which can be used for copying and backing-up files to an external hard disk drive or a USB memory stick. For anyone interested, Ukopp version 6.6 can be downloaded from here.

Thanks again, folks!

MagnifiKat
