TimeShift – System Restore feature in Linux Mint

TimeShift - System Restore feature in Linux Mint

TimeShift for Linux is a application that provides functionality similar to the System Restore feature in Windows and theTime Machine tool in Mac OS. 

 

TimeShift protects your system by taking incremental snapshots of the file system at regular intervals. These snapshots can be restored later to bring your system to the exact state it was in at the time when the snapshot was taken.

Snapshots are taken using rsync and hard-links. Common files are shared between snapshots which saves disk space. Each snapshot is a full system backup that can be browsed with a file manager. 

You need to run
the first time and
change, if necessary, the required settings on
your discretion
to Settings, and then click Save.

Now
TimeShift
will create copies
of files and folders in the file system
without your participation
in the folder /timeshift
file system.
In
case of a system failure
or for some
other reasons
you need
to close programs, open
TimeShift,
select
day/time that
you want to restore your system to
its
previous state, and
press the Restore button.
