    install one (or both) of the gui wrappers for backintime

    Code:
    sudo zypper in backintime-kde
    or if you're a gnome user
    Code:
    sudo zypper in backintime-gnome
    getting the manual is not a bad idea
    Code:
    sudo zypper in backintime-doc

    Thanks!

    I read this page:

    http://backintime.le-web.org/documentation/

    And they never once mentioned "backintime-kde"

    I would have never known if you had not told me. Thank you for your help.

    Do you agree that this "backintime" is the best solution for me to create incremental backups once per week that I will save to an external USB hdd that is formatted as NTFS?

    I don't do backups (I should) I usually store documents in a folder and once in a while I'll burn them on a DVD.

    I read this page:

    http://backintime.le-web.org/documentation/

    And they never once mentioned "backintime-kde"
    it is quite possible that someone else wrote those applications and the backintime author doesn't know about them, that's the beauty of open source a lot of people can compliment your work.

    Bad News =(

    I tried to create my first snapshot and got twenty million "permission denied" errors scrolling by so fast I can barely read them.

    I am trying to save the directory named "/" to an external USB hdd that is formatted as NTFS

    Im not sure that backintime is the best program for me.

    I would ideally like something that can compress the snapshots into tar.gz and maintain the linux permissions when being saved onto the NTFS volume

    Default Re: AW: backintime: Where is the gui?

    Thank you my friend,

    I did read that page previously. The only problem is they never ONCE in the entire page mention sudo.

    Go ahead and do a Cntrl + F on the entire page the word sudo does not come up even a single time.

    That was the source of confusion for me

    Install backintime-gnome or backintime-kde

    but that directory is your entire Linux system including external hard drives and the internet, only back-up your home dir/partition (or parts of it)
    so try again but only do it for /home there is little point in backing up everything else.

    Nothing wrong with it thee are several backup programs. I suggest that you go to yast software management and check the box search in description and search for backup. You will get a whole bunch to look at.

    Personally I format the USB stick as ext4 (no journel) and use Luckybackup, which uses rsync to backup. This way it is a proper Linux FS and once the first backup is done it is very fast only writing changes.

    There is something to be said for incremental it acts a time machine so you can go back to the main if needed. But restore can be a pain since you have to go to the original backup first then move through.

    For me a simple backup is good. I will start doing multiple rotating versions to allow for failure of backup media. USBs are dirt cheap
