iMsafe, a backup application for Mac OS X, has been updated by the folks at Psoft. Version 1.6 adds synchronization features
iMsafe now backs up or synchronizes data stored on any mounted Mac OS X volume (such as your hard drive) to any mounted Mac OS X volume, such as an external hard drive, Zip, network volume, iPod, etc. Backups can be run from within iMsafe or they can be scheduled to take place every day, on weekdays, or on specific days. And with the scheduling function, you don’t have to be logged in or running iMsafe in order to run backups, according to Peter Schols of Psoft.
With iMsafe you can run incremental backups, featuring the possibility to transfer only the differences in the files at both side. File permissions and modification dates can be preserved. When scheduling a backup to another Mac on the network, iMsafe can automatically connect to that Mac before starting the backup. The Dock icon will inform you about your backup status.
At present iMsafe only runs on an English version of Mac OS X, but localized updates are in the works. The US$13 utility requires Mac OS X 10.1. A trial version is available for download.
