Note: TimeShift makes use of rsync to get the work done. While you can easily make use of rsync to accomplish the same task, this provides a simple to use interface so you can get things done easier and faster.
Here is my example....
sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa
or ,if you do not have apt-get, you can run:
sudo apt-get update
Now it is time to install Timeshift program with this command and press ENTER:
sudo aptitude update
Now we will run the program, but remember that Timeshift is only executable with root privileges. Before I run the program I will show you the error message that you will get if you just run this command and press ENTER:
sudo apt-get install timeshift
To properly get the program to work run this command and press ENTER:
Now when the program opens you will see size requirement and all you have to do is click on "Backup"
