I´m at a turning point .. to change my OS from W7 to Ubuntu.
The thing is: Do I need to make a backup of my files?
Or, can I just install the new OS and my files will ALL be quite safe?

I have a WordPress install and I'm wonder what is generally best practice when it comes to back up. I'm asking here instead of WordPress.stackexchange as this question is not only a WordPress question but a general backup question.
I recently lost all my files on Kubuntu when i tried running the rm -rf / command. I later downloaded stock Ubuntu and installed it on my laptop and I set the backup manager to backup every week. I want to do a fresh install of Kubuntu again, so the question is this will the backup in Kubuntu be able to recognize my Ubuntu backup.
I'd like to try archfs or rdiff-backup-fs (as I understand it's same) but can't figure the right command line.
I make (test) backup with command rdiff-backup in-dir out-dir changed/deleted some files and make backup again few times. I was able to find "lost" files but it's hard to do. archfs is a tool to make that easyer but I don't know how to set up.
I've tested a few of backup utilities and still haven't found one that would satisfy me.
Almost every one of them has two options:
- full backup - not an option to use frequently
- incremental backup - seems right, but there's one thing about it:
Incremental backup builds on a base of a full backup, backing up only those files, that were created/changed.
Hi, i'm trying to install RDO(A Openstack cloud) on a laptop running Fedora 20.
The problem is that to install RDO and make it fully functional I need to make changes at the network-scripst files(create a bridge br-ex and connect it to the ethernet port) sometimes I do mess up things and end to having to reinstall Fedora from scratch.
I would like to know what files/directory i have to backup if I
