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

Fantastic! I have scheduled this application to back up my most important and most likely to be corrupted files, e.g., spreadsheets, on a daily basis and has just saved me immense difficulty when I accidentally overwrote an essential spreadsheet and nearly lost important data. It is small, simple to use, does the business without fuss and has never failed me. (You can also use it to back up to the cloud.) I cannot recommend this software highly enough.

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.

Tried several backup programs, none very good, chose Deja Dup because it works and is simple and intuitive to use. When the backup has failed (admittedly without much indication of what has gone wrong) it has always been because of lack of disk space. The website suggests that you CAN restore a single file. Two enchancements would be good: A panel to declare whether backup was successful instead of the little popup which can disappear before you spot it. Being able to save more than one backup list - so I could backup music on one and everything else on another without having to redefine them every time.
