Keep Application Settings
The restore window has a new tab which shows a list of applications.
Select the applications for which you want to keep your current settings.
The settings for all other (unchecked) applications will be restored from the snapshot.
For example, if you want to keep your Firefox settings (bookmarks, open pages, etc) select the 'mozilla' item from the Exclude tab.
Q: Why is the home directory excluded from snapshots?
The home directory is excluded for following reasons.
Excluding the home directory avoids these two issues.
Q: What about user settings which are present in home directory?
Settings which are specific to a user are kept in hidden files and directories (starting with a period) in the user's home directory. These files and directories are included by default. Only non-hidden files and directories are excluded.
Q: I have some folders in my home directory that I want to include in my snapshots.
You can add it to the list of included paths (from the settings window) but please remember that these files will get overwritten when you restore a snapshot. TimeShift is designed to protect your system files and settings. If you need an application to help you take backups of documents, photos and other user files, please take a look at other tools like BackInTime.
This release fixes all issues that were reported by users in v1.0.

TimeShift for Linux is a application that provides functionality similar to the System Restore feature in Windows and the Time Machine tool in Mac OS. TimeShift protects your system by taking incremental snapshots of the file system at regular intervals. These snapshots can be restored later to bring your system to the exact state it was in at the time when the snapshot was taken.
I have been trying to monetize my blog and applications for the last few weeks. After considering all options I am planning to provide support licenses for some of my applications. These applications will remain completely free for personal and commercial use but users will have the option to purchase a support license. Users who purchase a license will be given greater priority for implementing feature requests and providing technical support.
If you find Conky Manager useful and wish to support its further development, you can purchase a support license using the PayPal link below. You can pay any amount you wish. Amounts can be selected from the drop-down.
Thanks in advance :)
