    I don't know about most popular, but you can check out some backup/recovery software options here:

    Backup & Recovery | Linux App Finder

    If you find something that interests you, it would probably be best to check the Ubuntu repos to see if it's already in there before building it from source.

    Hope you find what you are looking for.
