First consideration (before doing anything else): if the data in /home is

An easy program for doing it in 13.2 is luckybackup from the repos (using
rsync proto).

I saw this and thought that luckyBackup might be an interesting
alternative to my ever evolving rsync based shell script.

Well that's a few hours I'll never get back.

No end of trivial problems.
Oh, its well documented .... for what the author intended.
There no documentation about the "what to do if things go wrong", and so
far my searches on the net have not turned up an answer.
Just one damned thing after another!

And it back to problems with permissions about when i stick in the usb
stick the popup demanding root password! Damn that!

I have had good luck with "backintime".
