What is timeshift?
creating a snapshot & scheduling
In order to make a snapshot, simply click "Create". You can also make scheduled snapshots by going to the settings -> "Schedule" and set the amount of daily, weekly, monthly, hourly, backups, or even set to backup in boot time.
=== Keep an amount of snapshots === Additionally, you may set the amounts of how many snapshots of each kind you would like to keep. so you could have 2 daily snapshots and 1 monthly kept all the time. You can do this by going to the settings -> "Schedule",and set the values there.
Restore the System
There are multiple ways to restore the system: * Click the "Restore" button and accept. * If the system is not bootable, you could use a live system off of a USB stick (using ubuntu is recommended), install timeshift on it, and restore the main system from there.
You may get the .deb file from the github page releases and use:
sudo dpkg-i <debfile>
You may also use:
sudo apt install timeshift
