Leo says that DropBox is always an option for his data. He should just back up the mission critical documents folder by dropping it into his DropBox folder. It works just like Windows. Deja Dup can backup to Amazon S3, which is online cloud backup. It will require two secret keys, and then Deja Dup will upload to S3. That would be a much better way to go.
