In this tutorial, we will teach you how to backup Linux files.
Backups basically come in handy when there is a system hardware failure. All your data is still intact, and you can continue on working without any sort of data loss. Furthermore, accidental deletion and viruses can corrupt your data, and it’s all the more easier to recover the data from a backup copy.
There are two popular programs for Linux-based operating systems, the first is the LuckyBackup application and the other is Déjà Dup, which we will be looking into in this video.
Déjà Dup is a simple Duplicity based backup tool installed by default in Ubuntu.
You can even use other applications such as LuckyBackup. The application can be downloaded from luckybackup.sourceforge.com where you can even get a complete detailed documentation about the software as well.
If you are using Ubuntu, you can even use the Ubuntu Software Center to download and install LuckyBackup on your system.
For this tutorial, we will be primarily looking into Deja Dub.
