    Unhappy Un-archiving the deja dup difftar.gz filetype?

    Is it possible I reentally installed mint whilst I wait to get more ram
    and lost some important files at the same time (not related) and they are in a deja dup backup but i have no idea how to access them

    Did you try using deja dup to restore your files?
    Personally I dont like using backup programs. I prefer to do my backups manually. So, as far as advice goes, this is as much as i can provide you.

    EDIT: Try this https://live.gnome.org/DejaDup/Help/Restore/LostFile

    or this if the above does not work https://live.gnome.org/DejaDup/Help
