    Deja Dup vs Back in Time as a BackUp

    Hi there,
    I was googling for a simple BackUp solution for Linux, and i found that Back In Time seems to be something which is good. But then there is also a Deja Dup alternative. So Back in Time is based on rsnapshot. And Deja Dup is based on Duplicity. What should that mean? Any pros and conc of them both? It also seems that Deja Dup is good integrated in Nautilus. Althou it doesnt means anything to me. And Deja Dup is more like a gnome specific maybe.
    Any ideas?
    All suggestions are appreciated,
    Sincerely yours,
    Nikolai

    Re: Deja Dup vs Back in Time as a BackUp

    To be honest with you I am not much on backups any more. Let me explain. It not that I don't backup my files, it is just that I do it a little differently now. I use Ubuntuone and save all my data files to both my hard drive (I have a SSD), and to the cloud.
    The only time I do a backup is if I am going to do a reinstall of my OS. I use online email so I don't need to worry about them either. I know this didn't answer your questions, but I thought I would just give you my humble opinion on backups.

    Deja Dup wins for me, because it's background, uniintrusive, uses Ubuntu One in the cloud and up till now is set and forget, including right click restores. What's more to need?
