This question already has an answer here:
I would like to make a backup of all the data in my Fedora Laptop (Pictures, Music, Videos, Documents, etc.) in an external hard drive. Basically I need to know two things:
A good software to do this which works in Fedora (since I am a very basic user, I would require it to be very user friendly).
What kind of external hard drive do I have to buy? I ask this because I researched a few brands (Toshiba, Sony and Verbatim) and they say their product is compatible with Windows and Mac, but there's no mention about Linux. I was thinking maybe I could just buy any of these brand's external hard drive and then format it to
ext4(the format my Laptop is formatted to), but I'm not sure.
Thank you in advance.
