THANK YOU! I've been looking for this since USBs were invented! Lifeboat works like a charm and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Well worth the money.

Users can then disconnect their updated LifeBoats and store them away for safekeeping. Keeping the backups up-to-date just requires plugging the device back into the Mac. Martian LifeBoat takes over from there, quickly updating the external device with a fresh copy of the users' most important data.
