TimeShift is Awesome!!!
#1
Here's a little context.  I recently bought a new SSD 500gbs 860EVO.  My old SSD is a 120gbs Samsung 840 EVO. 
My old one still has 18.3 installed.  I just installed 19.3 on the new one.

I've been tinkering with the new 19.3 installation got to a point where I liked it so far.  I was getting ready to do something and wasn't sure how easy it would be to uninstall if I didn't like it or if something went wrong how easy it would be to revert.  So I set up Timeshift.  This morning I was tinkering some more and I completely broke the system couldn't even boot to the desktop.  I new I created a Timeshift backup.  I asked my phone and discovered you can install timeshift when you boot into a live environment.  I thought why don't I try doing it form the old SSD 18.3 is still installed and it has timeshift (I've used it a few times since I had been using Mint the last couple years).  And sure enough it worked I was able to restore to a working snapshot and all is good. 

I just had to share this with someone no one else I know really cares LOL

Hello and yes I agree with you about Timeshift. Tony has 2 other programs that you might look at and see if you like them. One is Baqpaq which backs up your home directory. And also Aptik which I think is a great program and I like them very much. Tony keeps them constantly updated when needed!
