After my article about installing Déjà Dup on Ubuntu i thought it would be handy to create an article about how to make a backup with Déjà Dup. It’s not that difficult and doesn’t take much time to create a backup. This guide will show you how to setup Déjà Dup at first time usage….
Open Déjà Dup (Applications -> System Tools -> Déjà Dup)
Click on Backup
Click on the button that says: Amazon S3 and select a location to store your backup and click on the Forward button
To include/exclude any folders click on the Add buttons, select the folders and click on the Forward button.
Now click on the Backup button
Fill in a password and click on the Continue button
Wait while scanning
Wait while backing up
When the backup is finished click on the Close button.
