SuperDuper - Backup made super simple
Authored by: jonbauman on Mar 15, '06 07:34:06PM

Not to poo-poo the pick of the week, but I've been really happy with Carbon Copy Cloner. It's totally free, and very simple to set up. I have it set to nightly synchronize my internal drive to an external firewire disc, and ever morning it pops up the console log to tell me it worked. It's totally effortless backup.

CCC is considered donation-ware

Claiming Carbon Copy Cloner isn't "totally free". Making Donations says:
CCC is considered donation-ware (uncrippled shareware). I worked hard developing CCC and its methodology and documenting it on the internet for the rest of the Mac OS X community. If you find CCC indispensable, please consider making a donation. Please note that if you are using CCC for an educational institution, you should NOT donate to Bombich Software. My heart is in Education and all software that I write shall always be free to Education.

Plus, AFAIK, the source code isn't available, although the psync utility it utilizes for file synchronization is open source.
