1 Hangs up when backing up my home folder. It seems like the problem is with the hidden .\truecrypt folder but I could not find any way to exclude this. I am looking for another solution.

1 this thing does not work!! I have to uninstall it because it'd broke mintupdate. If you want a personal data backup use the classic "Copy Paste", and for packages backup i recommend APTonCD.

3 It has a good feature set but lacks scheduling automatic backup and incremental backups. One great thing about it is that it can save a list of installed packages so you it can reinstall them.

3 Took a few tries to get past some rough spots. If you use amazon mp3 download service, mintbackup will hang on your .amazonmp3/pipe fifo structure, so be sure to exclude it.

1 I think it does not work for releases after 11 Katya. There's probably a good reason for this but, if so, why is it included with 13 Maya (Mate anyway - have not trie Cinnamon yet.

3 Love the simple interface and the option to backup software. But I can't really use it until it allows backups to network drives

3 Easy to use, but can take a long time if you have significant amounts of data. Also would be good if it could be synced and could make incremental back ups

5 Finally a back-up program that does what's it supposed to do, nothing more or less! The only thing I miss is a function to synchronize with your back-ups.

4 Although this is a very good tool, it still needs some serious polishing. Sure, it would be awesome if you could schedule file backups, database exports or even allow remote management, simpler things would also be welcome. Backing up the home folder is cool but with so many hidden folder it would be nice if we could have multiple options wheter we want to restore/ignore the hidden folders and based on that option to specify the exception(s). This two-step feature for hidden folders would make it much easier to backup/restore exactly what is needed. The main issue with restoring bulk hidden folders is replacing newly installed files with old settings when the user doesn't want that. Anyway, I'll eagerly wait newer version of this tool. :)

2 The simple interface is great, however, it lacks the ability to do scheduled or automatic backups, nor can you use it to backup to an internet location.

3 I love the software selection backup. But for backing up the home directory, Déjà Dup gives more options.

5 This is a great tool for Linux Mint. My windows machine can't do these simple things.
