Very good backup and restore tool based on rsync. Good point is that it allows you to select OSX specific files to be backed up like applications and system settings.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS! I'm here to share my bad experience in case anyone is considering their cloud services. I've been a loyal client of this company since 2006. Been using their cloud services to store and organize my documents since the start of my business. It was all good until one fine day my credit card expired. They just sent the payment reminder to inform me that my credit card expired. The bank was already in the process of sending me the replacement card during that time. Then disaster strikes. Before I could update my new credit card details online, they suspended my account due to failure of payment. I rang up their support immediately and informed them my situation. Not only they were RUDE, they mentioned that it's IMPOSSIBLE to retrieve my data. I was told that my account and all associated data was deleted the moment the payment failed. Feeling devastated, I even offered to pay them additional just to retrieve my data. They rejected me straight and even explicitly said that it's my own fault. I'm not that tech savvy but I believe there should be some form of data replication in their servers right? 9 years worth of data were wiped clean just because of one failure to make payment on time. If you are thinking of opting to go with this company for their cloud services, you are better off with Google Drive or some other cloud providers. THEIR SERVICE IS SIMPLY APPALLING.

for a PPC machine running 10.3.9, i had hoped to rely on iBackup 7.3.1 to perform a weekly backup. (i do use the old machine regularly, and keep information on it i would like regularly backed up.) iBackup does write the backup to the proper place (a drive on an external machine, and the machine being backed up is connected to the external machine via cat5 cable, so no airport issues with speed or connectivity). it is incredibly sloowwwwwwww. the weekly backup started friday at 7:30am, and 26.5 hours later, it is 961MB through a 2.6GB backup. i can see progress in the log drawer occasionally (chgrp commands from what i can tell at the moment), so i know it's not completely hung. it is in the Applications folder, and once i can get the whole folder backed up, i can take that out of the list of things to back up. why would the chgrp commands be so slow? why are they necessary? is there something else that could be causing the slowness? any thoughts?

My MacBook Pro just had a system issue which affected Finder window display and IPhoto albums. No amount of tinkering would fix the issues, so I decided that an OS reinstall was in order. After erasing the volume, re-installing 10.6.5 and my files via Migration Assistant, the problem was still there. Aak!. I finally used iBackup to back up just my core Apple apps: Safari, iCal, Address Book, Mail, and Keychains. These I really wanted to be right, as losing or manually replacing them would be a complete pain. Erased the HD, reinstalled the OS, but did not take up the installer's offer to import my user settings. Basically, the computer was back to factory-new state. Gulped, ran iBackup 'restore', and bingo! All my mail and mailboxes, Safari bookmarks and history, Address Book contacts, and iCal calendars were just the way I had left them before wiping the HD. Very cool. Oh, and the problems that had prompted me to do the clean install were finally gone; everything works properly. Five stars and a donation to the developer from me!

Not at all! Time machine is the easiest,fastest tool and makes a 100% backup of your mac's contents EXACTLY. I don't know what could be an easier then simply clicking go back in time, and selecting a files/files you want to retore and then clicking resotre,that not only resotre the entire application but its assosiated preferences also in one click! these people on here are morons that they woul put thier faith in a cheap utility that time machine alreayd does better FREE!

You are correct, Tideshark. Apparently iBackup or Mac OS X has made progress with this problem in recent versions, although the discussion of the 'Volumes' problem remains at FAQ#7. Works for me now.

Someone should mention that (as stated in the iBackup 'Help') iBackup does not backup to external harddrives of any kind. iBackup is easy and does exactly what it says, but I deleted it after I got an external hard drive.

This has been a very reliable backup program for me, although occasionally I will get applescript errors that force me to restart the program. Also, it doesn't seem to work on my Power PC G3 ibook, even though I am running Tiger. For everything else though, it's worked great. For a "non-clone" backup, i.e. not a backup of your whole hard drive, it's hard to beat. I find the addition of application and system preferences and the ability to fine-tune which folders get backed up to be very useful, and restoring files is very easy. Even though I have three other purchased backup programs, I often come back to this one because of its reliability and ease of use.

I used versions of iBackup up to 5.1.7 quite happily for more than a year, and apart from the confusing help manual, I found it was a great little app that did what is was supposed to, efficiently and with the minimum of fuss. Now, at one stroke (5.2.6) the app has been stripped of much of its usefulness. The log report no longer lists the files which have been amended or added during the backup. Is there ANY user who doesn't want to know what has been affected by the backup? I don't know of any, and I have had to restore 5.1.7 to get this functionality back. I won't be updating to any newer version. (The developer tells me the change is to get extra speed, but I did not notice any difference during the backups I did using 5.2.6). I would strongly advise any users who need the BASIC ESSENTIAL MINIMUM facts of file updates, to download a previous version if it is still available.

Hi I don`t agree. iBackup let you select the items you want to restore, but only the same granularity as you have backed up. Let me explain: If you back up the whole folder documents (you select it in your home folder), you are able to restore the documents folder but not particular items of it. If you want to do that, you must backup these items first. In this example you must back up (or select) the items of the folder documents (or you select it as a smart folder), then you are able to restore all items individually. See the help on the web page for more details. Regards Martin

This program may be fine for backup, but the true test of a backup is in the restore. In that respect it falls very short. It can only do a total restore, but not a restore of individual files or folders. Compared to resurrecting a whole drive after a disaster, finding the old version of a lost or modified file is a much more frequent occurrence, and this program cannot do it. I don't want to restore 100 GB when I need one file.

I use the non-compressed sync to folder and it works great. It's fast and easy to select what I want backed up. I like that it has modules that dig out .pref files and other bits hidden in User/Library and other places for me. I've backed up and restored mine and my wife's desktops and laptops many times using this little gem.

There should be a more recent REVIEW here - so here it is. I've looked at many of the free and cheap-ware backup and "Sync" facilities that are around and this is by far the best of all, and equally free. The developer is incredbily responsive to suggestions and advice, and a couple of times has posted rapid upgrades to fix personal problems. Five stars from me on all fronts.

Stay away from this app. Just after backing up my user library reinstalled OS X 10.4 and updated it to the same version I was using when backing up. The user library just won't restore despite what you do.. And the worst is that if you need help there's nowhere to run. The site doesn't have any support docs. Just a plain explanative manual. No troubleshooting, no nothing.. Stick with Apple backup instead.

Extremely unreliable program! You have to check all files in the backup archive individually(!) to make sure they are really copied. Many files and folders are ignored entirely when specified using "dot files", for example "Application". It is far to easy to wind up with multiple backup files. For example, the "System Preferences" move many files that will also get moved if you backup your Library folder. Redundancy will always lead to trouble, sooner or later. A backup utility should be reliable. If it's not, then it isn't a backup program but just an enormous waste of time.

Backups all my important files to a safe location. That's pretty good for migrating from one machine to another without doing everything by hand. OK, it relies on AppleScript and UNIX commands, and yes, it's slow sometimes, but hey, you can't beat the price! Good software, IMO.

...first time I seriously use the software ever, the very first one being a kind of test to see the GUI. And I thought I should use it. Actually I wanted to copy everything from one disk to another, something I had been doing with CCC until recently (Before Mac OS 10.4.4): while 0k for the less populated folders, iBackup becomes a real nightmare with some others. For instance, 1821 items are within my music folder, and I had to check manually every single one I have there. Then, well I have experienced numerous Apple Script errors, -2753 (Task not defined? French localisation is not 100% here), and even -1700 (Folder using Greek letters; no problem with Japanese characters though). Anyway I managed through errors and glitches, and could complete the initial setup, normally a one time procedure if you do not change your folder structure. At least I thought I would start my backup right after the lengthy settings, and sadly I had to see yet another failure notice after a few minutes, according to which the OS would have some components that had stopped responding(!), which is something iBackup 5.0.2 would have detected, and it would now quit... The app itself was behind this notice, and the GUI was almost indistinctable, almost completely black. Now this is a backup program, and I do not feel I can rely on it any time now. LaCie's SilverKeeper (v. 1.1.4 by the way) can not save many profiles, but had my job done.

I don't see how this got a good review from anyone. - It's S-L-O-W. To make matters worse, it acts like it's fast, so you think you clicked an item, and nothing happens, but you never get any indication the program is working. - Applescript errors when checking and unchecking items. - There is no way to select all items for backup. That's right, you have to check EACH AND EVERY application, system preference, and folder you want to include. And this brings me back to the slowness. It takes a second for each of these checkboxes to register. It would likely take me hours just to select everything I wanted to backup. - Interface feedback is poor. I click the plus button, nothing happens; I move on to see if the "set" button does anything, and a file dialog opens up. Go figure, it's actually the first button catching up to me! but of course this window gives no indication of what it's for, so I assume the latter... ugh.

It was nice to see 4.1.1 come out so quickly after problems with 4.1 were reported. But now I am having trouble with this release as well. (1) Backing takes an extremely long time. (2) It completely ties up the computer, making it almost impossible even to force quit iBackup itself. (3) It doesn't manage memory well. Namely, although the preferences are set to replace the old backed up material with new, it doesn't find enough memory to do so. Which just does not work out mathematically, in my case. It'll have to be back to 4.0.8 yet again for me. iBook G3/OSX 10.3.9

Since I first discovered, I have found iBackup to be excellent. It provides a great service and couldn't be easier to use. On my machine, though, 4.1 has had several problems. It fails to back up many files for permissions reasons, and takes an incredibly long time to run. It does not like multi-tasking either. If this is related to "10.4.2 only" status, it should be clearer in the release notes. I am back to an older version - and loving it again. iBook G3/ OS 10.3.9

Excellent! A backup utility for the 21st century. I have been looking for a decent backup utility for a very long time. This one is the best so far. It would be perfect if there was an option to create a disk image of what you are backing up. Imagine if you could create a spanned disk image! Backing up to CD or DVD would go from labour intensive 3 day marathon to a Sunday walk by the beach. Where's my Visa? I going to donate. Thanks!

This App is really cool and extremely useful! The GUI is very easy to navigate and very powerful at the same time. My one complaint was going to be that the backup clock doesn't have AM or PM, but then I realized it's military time. So I would consider this app perfect for what it does. Now whenever I log in, iBackup opens (i selected the HIDE preference) backs up my entire system onto my External and I'm good to go if I need to restore! And Best of All: ITS FREE!

The program is such a time-saver. Not just a time-saver, but makes something complicated and arduous into something organized and easy. Thanks so much. From an iBook G3 it backs up onto a 10GB iPod rather slowly. Don't know about other externals. Logo could be something a bit less gimicky and a bit more reflective of what the software does.

I just didn't delete a previous installation's prefs. Extremely easy to understand. It's also very basic and just what I wanted. Support was fast and superb! Great job Martin! Will use this one . I gave it a 4 for Features because it's so basic but what it does, it does great!

I tried i t on both Ibook and eMac G4. It's still working on eMac but has caused my Ibook to freeze several times and wouldn't even force quit. Will be observing it on my eMac and see what happens. If this freezing on my Ibook can be somehow addressed, the only improvement I could think of is the "selecting" items could be improved and it could be more stable. Othewise, good try.

I'm having the same problem as anonymous (4/23/2005), except that at first, and for a while, scheduled backups _would_ work. Then I changed the time for the scheduled backup, and now it doesn't backup at the scheduled time, though I can backup manually. Any ideas? If I can get this to work, then I'll once again be delighted with this app. I'm running 10.3.9 on a G5, if that makes any difference.

Love iBackup! Seems like a much better free alternative to Apple's Backup software through .Mac. I love how you can save system and application preferences, although I wish the select/unselect process were a bit better... Like selecting or unselecting all. Simplest and best backup program I've found.

Great little app for basic backups. Not as robust as a "retrospect", but much cleaner and easier to use. With just a few clicks and not much thinking, a person can easily setup their most important files to be backed up daily, weekly, or monthly. Backup location is easily specified. Multiple copies of the backup data can be created (rather than just overwriting the previous version). There is a lot here in a simple to use interface. Most people don't backup their files for one reason or another, putting their files at risk. This tool makes it a no-brainer leaving no excuses for not backing up critical files. (bug note - after first launch and quit, the app would not come to the front and was therefore inaccessibly eventhough I could see it.)

Seems to be a very nice app. Would like it to make it burn to a DVD for backup :)

My schedule never launches...I have it set to back up at a certain time (5:01, there's no AM or PM... what's up with that?) and when I log in...it launches the app and then just site there. Silverkeeper is simpler but at least it works.

I've been using iBackup to backup a web folder for about 2 months now.... AWESOME application. It never fails. Two things I hope to see in future updates. I wish it would give you the choice to empty the trash after it trashes the folder. And, it would be great if it could back up an entire volume.

Really one of the best small,simple, and free backup utilities. I have tried them all and even published my own "backuplist" which has it's own simplicity (just a simple list) but iBackup is better organized, faster using shell commands etc. It is a good balance between complicated and too minimal. Also a great interface and application icon! Well done. I also would like to see the zip option (tried to code that in my app- no luck) but you can always do that on your own.

Great application - makes it very simple to set up quite complex timed backups (multiple folders and files, including preferences and applications). The only options I can think of that are missing are a complete hide (iBackup can be automatically run on logging in but is still shown in the Dock and DragThing) and zipping the backup folder (or even better, running an arbitrary command or commands on it).
