Question Backup tool


Please recommend an easy backup app for me to install and use. Please keep in mind that I have a slight brain damage. Thank you and may God bless.

I've heard good things about Back in Time. It's a GUI frontend for rsync.

It's been around for quite a while, so there's a good chance it's in your repos.

would be nice to know at least the amount of data you want to save and the device you want to use (is this a CD, pendrive, another disk, cloud environment, whatever).

Welcome to LQ; great to see your interest in Linux, in your IntroForum post; on patience
Here's LQ 'members choice' votes. Here's a page about 'online' (www) backups.

Slightly off-topic here, have you started using Linux yet? (I see Win browser icon in lower left)
If not, try VirtualBox: it's amazing to quick&easy try full Linux on M$Win

What things (&how) do you backup on M$Win?
