  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time,

Very noob question, sorry for that, I'm searching a way to create a restore point system, when I had problem with error message I just reinstalled POP so now I would like to create a restore point since everything works and eventually if problems will appears I will just restore it on my safe point, if problem I just need to get back where I was with all my app,
Oh and for my files, I don't care since they are on my google drive :)

thanks a lot guys!

Pop!_OS doesn't support taking "restore points" like Windows does.
My recommendation is to backup the system with Timeshift or backing up the entire system with Disks.
