Backup Options - freeware GUI backup tool
Authored by: matx666 on Apr 22, '04 11:38:57AM

At work I use Bombich's excellent Carbon Copy Cloner and NetRestore.... http://www.bombich.com. A real good combo for making clones, syncing to a clone, and restoring a complete image, but what else is there?

Backup options worth considering:

1. PsyncX: To local volume, easy GUI

http://sourceforge.net/projects/psyncx

2. RsyncX: More complicated, but backups anywhere, even over a network, with new GUI tools for making cron jobs and more.

I have not had success with SilverKeeper and scheduled backups.

Manual sync seems to work fine.

Make sure you have version 1.1. From the release notes:

Scheduling now available under OS X (V10.2 or newer). Backups may be set for a specific day and time. Additionally, can also set backup to occur at next startup. You cannot schedule backup to occur at shutdown, as OS X has specific limits as to what can be done at shutdown time.
