RetroPie file backup.

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to do a backup of a Linux based Ubuntu using the built in Déjà Dup utility.

    So I figure I just need to backup the $Home/Retropie directory + some others?

    If so what are the other directories to backup.

    My ideal recovery synario would be to an install of Ubuntu then do a file restore that would bring back Retropie plus all my roms and config.

    The less idea is to do a Install of Ubutu then do install Retropie then do a restore after that.

    I am guessing since linux is more file system based then windows this type of synario is easier as there is no registry to content with. But I could be wrong there might be some other factors I am unaware of.

    Any thoughts or ideas.
