G'day hacktheworld, Welcome to linux.org
I was under the impression that parrot os was based on debian/ubuntu.......which would mean that Timeshift will work there.
I may be quite incorrect here....that has happened before today
Tell us what went wrong, when you tried Timeshift
Thank you very much,
Parrot OS is based on debian, but Timeshift don't work in rsync mode.
Can I use luckyBackup to backup the system files without external drivers (such as USB) needed?
Thank you,You can pick pretty much anywhere you want as your backup destination. That can even be a directory on the same drive, if that's your goal. It's not a drive imaging tech, it's just a front end for rsync and maybe a cron front end 'cause you can schedule backups as well. It's a bit old but still works when I use it.
Thank you very much!!
Please can you tell me if the settings in the screenshot are right?
Thank you very much,You might want to preserve hard links (for restoration reasons) and some folks might worry about disk space and want to delete files at the destination, which will remove older versions of files.
I like your settings just fine for now, but watch it to see if it gives you the results you're after and adjust accordingly. There's no 'right' settings - there's just the settings that are right for you.
So, let it run as it is and see if you're happy with the results. Then run it again in the future (you can schedule it, which is just a front end for cron) and keep tabs on it for a while to ensure it's doing what you want it to do.
You can also use this as an excuse to learn rsync, which is a potentially complicated application. That's why I suggest the front end instead of the application itself. Still, you can learn the intricacies while you're at it.
