Check How to back up data in Linux PC

Linux provides users with many different types of control over the computer system, but with great power comes great responsibility. That means keeping backups of your files regularly (among other things), and while cloud storage is widely used and fascinating, for many of us, it is not enough. Here’s how to back up your data.

Install Simple Backup

To install SBackup, open its menu and click on software center. Search for SBackup and install the software from the search results.

Configure SBackup

The recommended SBackup configuration assumes that you have / var / backup pointing to a separate hard drive. That is generally not the case on personal laptops and desktops, so it would probably be a better idea to select custom backup settings and change the settings as needed.

Next, click on the include tab and add the files or directories you want to back up. The backup program runs as root, so you can back up any directory even if your user does not have access to it.

The next tab will have settings to exclude directories, file types (based on file extension), a regular expression (regex), or based on file size.

By default, SBackup doesn’t back up most media files, so if you don’t already have your videos and music backed up, you’ll want to adjust the settings below to include them in your backups. Just make sure your backup hard drive has enough space to store all your media files.

It is also recommended to change the maximum size setting because, by default, SBackup does not back up anything larger than 95 MB.

The destination tab will allow you to select your destination folder, hard drive or remote directory.

Although the remote directory only shows SSH and FTP, other protocols such as SFTP and SMB are also supported. To enter a different protocol, just add the correct information to the beginning of the path and make sure you have the correct username and password in the path as well. The format of a network path is : // username: password @ server / share. If you are backing up to a remote server, you must also check the box to cancel if the destination does not exist; otherwise the backup will be stored locally on your hard drive.

Alternatively, you can also omit the username: password information in the URI, but you will be prompted for your credentials each time the backup starts.
