There are plenty of tools which can be used to restore the Linux system to its previous working state. But the most useful tool for Linux system backup is “SystemBack”. Systemback is an open source application. The main features of systemBack are :

1.   Backup of system

2.   Restoration of system

3.   System copy

4.   Installation of system

5.   Creation of live system

6.   System repair

7.   System upgrade

To use the SystemBack for restoring your system to its previous state, follow the below steps

a.   Install SystemBack on your Linux.

b.   Launch the application

c.   It will show some window which says to set the restore points. Create the new system restore points by clicking on create new button. You will find this under Point operation section.

d.   After creating restore point, the backup will get restored in /home/systemback folder. You can change the location from storage directory option.

e.   Click on the restore button which is under function menu.

f.    Follow the onscreen instructions.

Hope it will get you the system back to its previous state.
