How to backup System files and Packages?

Unread post by scottfrey » Mon Jan 15, 2018 11:54 pm

Since Hyperbackup can't "see" @directories, and @appstore/[packagename]/* is where many packages store thier settings, how do I back those up?
(some package datafiles are duplicated in /usr/local/[packagename] so teh same question applies there)

I'll note these are not applications that are available in Hyperbackup either
