Home > Admin > Backup Tool


Guys, I just noticed a new app in Linux Mint 21: Backup Tool, found at Menu > Administration > Backup Tool.

When you hover over the link, the corresponding narrative reads, "Make a backup of your home directory".

Does it work? I am considering using it in conjunction with Timeshift, to back up my laptop installation.

Thanks, guys.
