Backup settings on fedora

0 votes

There apprently is a backup service in Fedora, which can automatically copy files to various "cloud-services" or other places. What is needed to be able to add /var/log/yum.log to the files that are backed up.

The file is greyed out, and I can't select it. How do I solve this or should I go for some other tool for this?

Check the permissions, only root can read or write that file. Unless you're running the backup as root (Something I don't recommend.) you're not going to be able to include it.

I am looking for a good backup program. I would like to be able to restore an entire partition or all partitions if the there is a disk failure and sometimes to be able restore a single file.

The backup program that comes with Ubuntu appears to be for restoring single files only although you could reinstall and then restore over the new system to get back to where you were.

Does anyone have a suggestion.
