"After showing you how to use Back In Time, it is time to feature another simple backup tool called SBackup (also known as Simple Backup Suite). This GNOME-based backup software is capable of backing up any subset of files and directories and exclusions can be defined by regular expressions. Backups can be saved to local directories or remote servers using GIO/GVFS technology.

"Since I'm using Ubuntu, I installed SBackup using this command:

"sudo apt-get install sbackup

"You could also use the Ubuntu Software Center when installing SBackup. For non-Ubuntu users, you may get it using your package manager or from HERE.

"After installing SBackup, run it by navigating to System Tools --> Simple Backup-Configuration, and then provide your login password."
