    It might...

    The 'ps' command showed that the backup is going to:

    Code:
    /var/run/media/hexdump/6CC2-7168/

    It is a virtual mountpoint gnome uses. No, you do not backup it -
    actually you can't.

    Probably :-)

    Me, I prefer to create a full system image, so I can't very well advice
    on the procedure to rebuild your way. I have done it, and I don't like it.

    recovery on same or different machine. Or even try it into a VB machine.
