New non-tech Linux user, Mint Mate 19.2. Backup program needed, target is a new 1tb ext. drive. TimeShift is included in the distro, but I've been advised against using it for a couple of reasons that seem to be surmountable, however, one point I noticed in sniffing around is that it seems you cannot specify the time of day for scheduled backups, as you can with, for example, Macrium in Windows. If true, you would have to leave the backup drive always connected, not such a good idea. But I could overcome that as well, by doing manual backups on my own schedule. Veeam has been suggested, but after digging into that program, I'm afraid it's too technical for my level of learning. Interested to know what others are using.
