Ubuntu Upgrade Doubt on Backup/Restore


I am running Ubuntu 15.10, 32 bits right now and I have its backup.

I later plan to do a fresh install of ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64 bits later this April.

Now, will I be able to successfully restore my backup to Ubuntu 16 from Ubuntu 15 ?

Or will there be any problems ?


Hi, What exactly have you backed up? If it is contents of the home folder then it can be restored in higher versions. if it is config files then it depends on the package.


Hi VincentVikram, I have used the default backup app provided by ubuntu which backs up my home folder.


then yes, you can restore it in a higher version


Thankyou so much sir :smile:
