    Mary – systemback is not a backup program. Instead, it takes snapshots of your working SYSTEM files, so that you can rollback to a previous point in time. The idea is like mac’s timemachine – I think windows has something similar. You take snapshots of the system at regular points, or manually, say before you install some s/w not in the repos, or before you start editing system files. Then if anything breaks, you can restore the system to the point when it was working.
    It’s not meant to backup system files – you’d use another (traditional) backup tool for that. Thats probably why Lite had the two tools there.
    Another tool in the same vein is Timeshift. I’ve tried them both and they seemed to work on a quick test. I’ve not had to use either in anger.
    The drawback of course is that the first snapshot you take is essentially a copy of all of your system (excluding your user files), albeit compressed – so it takes a while and a fair bit of space. But, if you have the space, it’s a great concept.
