I am running Ubuntu 9.10 and at the moment everything works fine. The problem was that when I clicked to update a month or so ago my computer would not load into Ubuntu (see topic http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ubuntu-793841/
I could not recover from this with my limited knowledge of linux at this point and had to reinstall and lost everything
I was wondering if I could click the update link but have some way of backing up my entire setup so that I don't risk losing it all again? Or is it safe to update now? And what did I do wrong last time?
I don't plan to do anything till I know I am safe to update but any help is appreciated
