How can I change the encrypted password of Deja-dup (Backup)?

I have set the encrypted password, it worked in the first two days, but now every time the backup starts it asks for the password I type it but it asks again and again as a result the backup is not taken. I'm using Ubuntu 11.10.

Thanks for your help!

You can't easily change the password unfortunately. In order to do so, you must either create a fresh backup in a new location or delete the existing backup files and back up again.

However, it sounds like you may have hit a bug. Please consider filing a bug at
