Backup utility
  20 reviews

Déjà Dup is a simple backup tool. It hides the complexity of backing up the Right Way (encrypted, off-site, and regular) and uses duplicity as the backend.

* Support for local, remote, or cloud backup locations such as Nextcloud
* Securely encrypts and compresses your data
* Incrementally backs up, letting you restore from any particular backup
* Schedules regular backups
* Integrates well into your GNOME desktop

Never got past the first prompt to grant access to my google account. Why make this a requirement?

When I saw "Grant Access to My Google Accout"... I uninstalled. I will not compromise my system to what use to be a really good utility. I needed another BU solution to migrate a crashed system, and this utility, (when I used it years ago) was a nice tool, but when that flag popped up after the install, I tried to do a simple bypass, but then it popped up again. I couldn't uninstall this crap fast enough. Google is NOT secure at all!

To be fair, this is a really old version. The flatpak in the Mint store defaults to Google Drive, but doesn't ask for your Good ID unless you use it. That said, I found it didn't back up everything, even after multiple attempts. I was glad that certain mission-critical files were stored in my pCloud account as well, or they would have been lost. I'll be trying something else for my file backups.

Not a fan of having to use my google account "just because". It says in the description that I can use this with "cloud backup locations such as Nextcloud", well... Do I need to log in with my google info for Nextcloud? Does it support only OneDrive as I write this? I mean, if there is a reason, I can''t see it. I saw Ubuntu One being used in the images tho :)

Seriously! You have more than one box and DON'T use this to backup your data between the two? This has to be the simplest way to automate backups when combine with a password manager and an SSH link to another box. Lierally THE fist package I install on any new linux box.

J'enlève une étoile car on ne peut sauvegarder que des dossiers. Ça serait bien de penser aussi aux fichiers :)

Works fine on my LM16 Cinnamon. I ran deja-dup-preferences to schedule regular backups. It uses duplicity; so if you want to do a more selective file restore, you could try using duplicity directly.
