The installer never gets through searching for appropriate volumes. Hence, I can't install it.

The Mac installer provided by Apple is little confusing in that you "sometimes" have click the drive to continue or else it appears the installer is still searching.

Quite good, but need the following extra features to replace my own backup scripts:
1: No zipping, just copying files. I make DMGs of them every week anyway, and besides: if this one single zip file failes, you've got nothing.
2: Differential/incremental backups: With a total backup of 700MB it's not really pleasant to copy all that every time.
3: Admin/sudo mode: I need to backup other users files too, because I know they won't.
For the rest it works quite well.

Very good, but some things are missing:
1. An option to not zip the backup, but just copy the files.
2. When I try to backup files of other users, it hangs, it needs an administrator mode.
For the rest: Very clear interface!
