Simple, backs up to networked, hard wired or hosted drives. Doesn't make backups bootable, but I wouldn't expect that from such a lightweight program. I primarily use it to backup to a hosted ftp, which SuperDuper! doesn't do. And I'm a paying customer of SD too.

Perfect for my needs. I was shocked at how hard it was to find a solution to back up to ftp drives. My search is over.

It is remarkable how difficult it is to find a good back-up program! This one is nice and simple, but every now and then it unexpectedly quits when I'm modifying or adding a back-up schedule, and when I reopen it has forgotten all of my schedules. A pain!

I'm searching for a decent backup utility, that can backup my main HD. Does psync make bootable backups?

Download is a .mpkg file with no readme explaining what it will install. You need to be daring and double-click the mysterious .mpkg file to get to the readme. The project site on Sourceforge has questions from users that have gone unanswered - including a question on how to uninstall PsyncX.

Free software is good! Backup utilities are good! Free backup utilities with no instructions nor developer follow-up to questions is not good!

PsyncX might be great, but I'm not brave enought to install it without instructions on what it does or how to uninstall it if I don't like it.

PsyncX has saved my butt numerous times. I mirror my backup files on a daily basis, and Psync does all the work for me. It runs invisibly in the background every night around 3 AM, and I don't even have to know it's there: IT JUST WORKS. If you don't backup your files, you should, and this is the best way to do it.

FIVE STARS!

Excellent GUI. Don't use international signs for your path settings (such as "Gérard" for backup target).

An amazing application! I've long been searching for an application that lets me easily back up to smb shares -- it does this -- and it works. Everytime.

Its interface knocks DeJaVu out of the water, and is a great improvement over earlier versions.

It would be nice if there was some way to leverage the more powerful psync features via the GUI, but we can't have everything. However, please don't get me wrong - this does in no way detract from the core purpose of this application.

There is no better way(IMHO) to move large amounts of data around a multi OS network, or backup data to any type of share under MacOSX.

So for those of us to lazy to learn the CLI way of being, this application/guiwrapper must surely be the answer.
