Lifeboat is a reliable, easy-to-use backup utility. Pick where, what, and when and Lifeboat will handle all the dirty work of backing up your files. With incremental backups and compression, your backups will take up as little time and space as possible.
Backups can be saved locally on your computer, a CD or DVD, an external hard drive, or sent over a network to a .Mac account, a shared folder on another Mac, or a shared folder on a windows computer. Wherever you choose to backup, Lifeboat will copy your files, compress them, and write out a digest of what it did for restoring later.
Lifeboat is designed to make restoration as possible as it can. Restore directly from a backup task, from any backup digest, or if all else fails, restore from the backup manually. Lifeboat creates a human-readable digest at each backup location that you can use to locate each file and place it in its original location.
Files can be chosen in two ways: pick them directly or use a smart group to grab a set of files. Smart groups can be created just like a smart folder in finder and will automatically update as you add files to that set of files.
