The Babel Company
recently updated their backup utility
to version 2.1, which features a rewritten burn engine, burn drive choices, the ability to save disk images for later burning, and speed and performance enhancements as well as bug fixes.
Impression allows you to back up files and folders to, and restore them from, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, or DVD-RW discs, as well as disk images on any mounted hard drive. Its features include multi-session disc burning for multiple small backups, AES-128 disk encryption and password storage in Mac OS X’s Keychain, large file segmentation between two discs, a bookmarked session backup management system, and more.
In addition, Impression allows you to perform full, incremental, or differential backups, and it includes a disc erasing utility for re-using CD-RW and DVD-RW discs. When you restore files, it performs MD5 file checksum validation to ensure accuracy, and its bookmark-based backup management allows you to base an incremental or differential backup on a previous one.
System requirements call for Mac OS X v.10.2.x “Jaguar” or higher and an iTunes/DiscRecording-supported CD-R/W or DVD-R/W drive, if backing up to optical disc. Impression is a US$25 application, but you can save $10 between now and May 18 by following the rules posted on The Babel Company’s
