Never fear losing a file again as we take you through creating backups that run like clockwork and expert snapshots that can rebuild your system in minutes! So there’s one less thing to worry about in this crazy world.

Also we look at the cool features of LibreOffice 7, create a streaming video service, test privacy distros, build a game in the Godot engine, emulate the Commodore 64 and loads more.
