In video games backtracking is when you have to move through 'finished' areas which you already went through to be able to progress.
All this backtracking sucks! Couldn't the level designers place the red door closer to the red key?

A linux based operating software used by mediocre and advanced hackers for wifi password hacking and security breach research.
I just used backtrack to crack my own wep key. Better use a wpa password to make it harder to crack.

When you go in a direction, then you go the opposite direction to your last position.
Example:
(X = You)
You go north, then south

O ^ \ X II \ O

X II / O V / X
(Original position) (Back to original position)
or
You go from your dining room to your kitchen, then back to your dining room
(Backtrack)

When you realise something you did wasn’t as good as you thought so you have to hurry the fuck jo and fix it.
A good case of backtracking:
