I have pretty much started from scratch on my new installation because I couldn't figure out how to restore the files I backed up on my Linux installation with Deja Dup. I have GPG Keychain access installed, so what do I need to do to restore the files I had and look at them and see what I want to keep?

I really appreciate any answer you can give :)

Deja Dup is unknown in the OS X world, you might want to ask in the Deja Dup forum as well. – patrix Apr 23 '13 at 3:50

One option would be to use VirtualBox to install the Linux distribution of your choice and then run Deja Dup from there.

That makes a lot of sense, and I do have a Virtual Machine with Ubuntu! Thanks a lot, this is the answer I'm looking for! – user104323 Apr 23 '13 at 13:08
