I use Simple Backup (sbackup) which is a very nice and simple program for people who know the basics of backups. If you don't have any clue about making backups and want an even simpler solution you could install Déjà Dup (deja-dup).

For installing a program just open the Software Center from the Applications menu and type in the program you want to install. In the list there is a button "install" for every entry on the right. You will need to enter the root password.

Thank you for helping, but I need "undelete program". I will backup in
the future when I upgrade again.

> "undelete program"
As the example of testdisk shows, it isn't trivial like "click here, click there" to recover files from an extX fs.
btw. the more you're using the system now (as it will overwrite), the harder it becomes to recover.
