Backup and restore

Install timeshift.

Step 1. First, make sure that all your system packages are up-to-date by running the following apt commands in the terminal.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Step 2. Installing Timeshift on Ubuntu 20.04.

  • Install Timeshift via default repository Ubuntu.

Timeshift packages are available in default repositories, run the following command to install them:

sudo apt install timeshift
  • Install Timeshift via the official repository.

Now add the Timeshift repository to our Ubuntu system:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa

Next, install the Timeshift using the below command:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install timeshift

When it is installed

Create system backup

Step 1 Open the timeshift application via top left Activities menu.

Click on that icon with your right mouse button and add to favorites


Upon opening the timeshift application you will be greeted with a wizard to help you schedule your backups. Here you have two options. First is to use the rsync as a main backup tool or take an advantage of an inherent BRTFS built-in file system features. In this example we will use rsync. Select RSYNC and hit the Next button.

Step 2
  • Select backup destination. timeshift will search your system for available file-system partition and provide you with an option to where to create backup file.

    Step 3

  • Select how often you wish to perform the system backup and how many backup snapshots you wish to retrain before the first backup is overwritten.

    Step 4

  • As the screenshot indicates the home directories are excluded by default. Depending on you work environment select whether you wish to include home directories into the backup.

    Step 5
  • This will conclude your initial backup schedule setup. Hit the Finish button.

    Step 6

  • The backup has not been created yet. You can either wait until the timeshift automatically triggers the backup or simply hit the Create button to perform the previously predefined backup now.

    Step 7

  • Wait for the backup to complete.

    Step 8

  • If all went well you should now see your first backup snapshot listed.

    Restore from backup

    Step 9

  • At this point we will restore the system from the previously created system backup snapshot. Select a backup snapshot from which you wish to restore and click on the Restore button
