The program's interface has 4 tabs - overview, storage, folders and schedule. You select where to back up in "storage", what folders to back up and ignore in "folders" and how often to back up in "schedule." Overview displays all these settings and offers a choice of backing up and restoring. See More
This is not really a "con" but more a warning. I use DejaDup regularly, it works fine AS LONG AS YOU USE THE SAME VERSION/ON THE SAME PC.. So I recently changed PC with new DejaDup installation, PROBLEM I could not restore the data backups from the previous PC (I think that is a known issue, variable or no backward compatibility) you can attempt to recover via command line but that is very complicated. So... great backup programme for the "current" situation (same PC, same OS etc) but do not expect to be able to get backups restored that are a few years old/made with a previous version of DejaDup See More
