Nice, simple interface, and works pretty well. Document comparison worked poorly for me, and some of my custom rules for exclusion did not work which led to too-frequent backups of common files. Having *all* available versions of a file instead of hourly (like Time Machine) is certainly an improvement.

Excellent software for those of us who won't migrate to Leopard and Time Machine. The interface is very nice, and is not even comparable with other backup softwares. The only thing missing is the ability to make an initial backup of all the files. As I understand it, only the files modified after TimeDrawer is installed are backed up. It's nice for a version history software, but it doen't serves as a real bakcup software.

Interesting - and the gui is nicely simple - giving it a try is the best way of finding out.

Previous comment - english is not the only language around - babelfish also works ;-)
Remember it's a beta , it's free and the developer shouldn't have to bend over backwards to persuade you to try it.

IT would be nice if the web site told more about the product (english please). P.S. How is the author going to differenciate this from Leopard's 'Time Machine'?

I will add more information later. ...I just don't have time to make website at the moment.

There are already big advantages compared to TimeMachine.
1. TimeDrawer can work on Tiger.
2. TimeDrawer does not need an external HD.
3. I am enjoying making it.

As I do most of my computing on laptop, it is #2 that excites me the most.
