finance is a bit tight at the moment and I cannot afford to get another drive for my computer.
I have plenty of room on my current drive and have about 40% that I will now devote solely to backups.
I am new to Linux and have been doing a lot of experimenting with it and plan on playing around with Zorin OS a lot more.
Being a Noob that is trying to push the envelope pretty hard this means that I am liable to break my OS.
In fact I have already broken Zorin 16 once after trying to uninstall a MacOS KVM.
Luckily I was able to recover Zorin and reinstall my gnome desktop and now I am back in business again.
But if I had timeshift and already had a previous backup I would not have gone so close to competely losing my install.
So that being said, I am doing backups for one reason only at this stage, and that is to recover a damaged OS.
If I am just restoring a damaged OS do I need to worry about running DejaDub for my home partition?
My understanding is that if an existing Linux OS is recovered then no home folder files would have been lost?
