Déjà Dup

Déjà Dup

Déjà Dup is a simple backup tool.

The software hides the complexity of doing backups the 'right way' (encrypted, off-site, and regular). It is a frontend for Duplicity (which uses the rsync library and gpg keys for encryption) written in Vala.

The tool is extremely simple to use. It offers two big buttons, one for manual backup and one for restoring.
