I just used the back up option under system settings to back up my entire system. I did that in my home directory and created a folder with .gpg files under deja-dup. What is this sort of back up and how can i retrieve my backed up files if want to from this folder.

Déjà Dup is an incremental back-up utility which means it will back up all the files that have changed since the last backup.

To restore a backup, click the Restore button in the Déjà Dup window. It will automatically show you the folder that you last backed up to (or you can select the one you want). See here for a tutorial.
