Backing up is one of the most important things one should do to be a happy user, and although most people understand this, there are very few who actually do it. What is the reason we are not backing up our files? There may be three reasons for this. The first one is that your files are not that important so you don’t care if you loose them or not. The second is that backing up takes time and resources. The third reason is that you may think that it is a complicated process that requires special technical knowledge to perform with success. Deja Dup is the answer to the third statement, and the answer is “no”.
Deja Dup is the GNOME way to backup your files in a simple and easy, yet powerful and secure way. Let’s see what we can do with it…
The start screen gives you two choices. The first one is to start restoring a previous backup while the second allows you to access backup settings and start a new backup task. You can restore files from a previous backup in many different ways including local, remote, or cloud backup locations, such as Amazon S3, Rackspace Cloud Files, and even Ubuntu One!
The creation of a backup is not difficult either. All you have to do is press the “Backup Now” button, choose a password for your backup accessibility and choose a destination for your files.
If you don’t want to do this manually, you can easily set up a backup schedule by simply choosing how often you want to backup and how long these backups should be kept in your storage space.
Deja Dup can also encrypt your backups for security, and compress them for storage resources economy. It is very easy to use and integrates well with your GNOME desktop. How about a backup today?
