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.
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.
Installation into Linux Mint:
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa sudo apt update sudo apt install timeshift
