SilverKeeper, a freeware backup solution for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X from LaCie, has been released and the
SiliverKeeper Web site
is now up.
SilverKeeper automates backups to external storage devices such as hard disks optical disks, and other removable storage devices that have IDE, ATAPI, SCSI, USB, or FireWire interfaces. Essentially any read/write device that can mount on the Mac desktop can be used with SilverKeeper, according to Mike Mihalik of LaCie.
The backup solution requires Mac OS X 10.1.2 or OS 9.0.4 or later with the CarbonLib 1.5 extension installed. Documentation is provided as a set of SilverKeeper help files that are installed with the application.
SilverKeeper is freeware. However, you have to provide LaCie with your name and e-mail address in order to download it.
