Comparison of Ubuntu Backup tools

Im wanting to create some sort of backup solution for the documents contained in my home folder. So far ive considered increasing my dropbox or ubuntu one storage in order to back everything up. Are there any better options for backing up on ubuntu? Would using ubuntu one work out cheaper or more expensive than opening an amazon s3 account for example?

You might consider the Deja-Dup Backup tool. It allows you to backup to a variety of locations, including AmazonS3, an external hard drive, or a location on your network.

You can install it from the Ubuntu Software Center.

(Ubuntu One actually uses Amazon S3 as their storage and transfer facility! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazon_S3)
