Hi, this made me really angry. Package yast2-backup is missing
for 13.2: http://software.opensuse.org/package/yast2-backup Why?
This was one of the most useful YaST modules! Is there any
replacement?

It had no maintainer AFAIK. Yast-snapper is probably its
successor.

No way. There is no relation whatsoever between a backup, stored on
different media, and a snapshot, which by definition is on the same
media, and thus may have been destroyed.

YaST backup could, in theory, recover from bare bones.


+1

Snapper style 'snapshots' are an artefact of BtrFS's COW mechanisms.
They are quite different from an 'snapshot' for backup purposes such as
might be taken with a LVM partition copy, a rsync copy, or as Vojtěch
mentions, a TAR copy.

The idea that backups are not important as Cristian implies is quite
unacceptable.
