First and foremost, thank you very much for dedicating some of your precious time to developing / maintaining this very useful and important application! Having a functioning GUI backup tool on Linux is a god-sent to anyone using this OS as daily driver.
I set up my system’s backup as follow:
- TimeShift to backup the system while excluding the home folder
- Deja-Dup Backups to backup the home folder.
I created a restore/recovery USB flash drive with persistent partition based on Kali Linux and installed TimeShift and Dejà-Dup Backups on it to test the restore functions of both applications. TimeShift restored the backup archive I selected flawlessly. But I got stuck on Deja-Dup because of a permission issue. Should restoring a Deja-Dup backup from a live OS be at all possible in your opinion and is the issue I encountered a bug? or should I consider this permission problem to be a feature? What I aim at is the ability to restore a full system when it is not bootable and I have to format the partitions.
Thank you again and in advance for your attention and reply.
