DSW + iBackup instead of rolling your own
Authored by: improbable on May 09, '08 07:12:19PM
I had this hint bookmarked, as for a year I'd been making backups based on it: use DoSomethingWhen to run an Rsync via AppleScript.

Today I found iBackup http://www.grapefruit.ch/iBackup/ which is the perfect companion for DSW. It's a rather nice front-end for rsync, with an easy menu of what to back up and where to. It can overwrite your old backup, or can label each folder with the date, and limit to N folders, etc.

Actually I'm using it to back up my computer onto hard drives / iPods etc, rather than the other way around. I'm not certain you could make it do that, now that I think about it. Anyway. I wish I'd found it sooner.
