Ubuntu – How to test the integrity of a backup made with Backup (Deja Dup)


I'm running 11.10 and did a backup with the default program titled "Backup" (Deja Dup).

How can I know that it backed up my files correctly / completely?

Best Answer

  • Update Deja-dup to 24.x or latest release.

    In later version of 23.x they have added integrity check feature.

    After every backup, we make a small check to confirm we can restore a test file. And every two months, we make a more intensive check.
