Backup advice requested

Backup advice requested:

This morning I saw a post about Windows 10 backup (doesn’t work well) and remembered that I have not yet devised a backup plan.

Mint 18.3 has a new backup tool that looks really useful, saving personal data (/home?) and software selections. Is an externally attached USB drive the best place to save data?

The Timeshift application is also mentioned on linuxmint.com, but I can’t find it on the system. Must I start making backups before I can see it? P.S. Oops, I see it in Synaptic Package Manager.
