Timeshift for Linux is an application that provides functionality similar to the System Restore feature in Windows and the Time Machine tool in macOS. It protects your system by taking incremental snapshots of the file system at regular intervals. These snapshots can be restored at a later date to undo all changes to the system.


  • Minimal setup
  • Multiple snapshot levels
  • Rsync & BTRFS snapshots
  • Cross-distribution restore
