Folder Backup allows you to back up any folder into a single disk image archive with one simple click.
  • It backs up your folder into a single disk image archive which is compact and prevents from any involuntary access.
  • If you want you can possibly burn the resulting disk image archive onto a CD or DVD.
  • You can select the source folder you want to back up.
  • You can select the destination disk image in which you want to archive.
  • You can drag an drop the source folder you want to back up on the application's icon or the window's buttons.
What's New
Version 4.0:
  • A full recompilation has been made to be compatible with OS X 10.7.
  • A full recompilation has been made again as Universal Binary to keep being compatible with both old (PowerPC) Macs and recent (Intel) Macs.
  • The time to launch the action after the backup is finished has been reduced to 10 seconds.
  • The "How to install it?" paragraph of the documentation has been updated to explain how to install and launch the application in particular under Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion:
    Under OS X 10.8, if you're launching the application for the first time, maybe Mac OS X's GateKeeper (which you can configure in the "System Preferences") will refuse to launch it because you've not downloaded it from the Mac App Store (but from our website). In this case, instead of double-clicking on it, all you have to do is to right-click on the application's icon, and then select the "Open" menu. A message will appear in which you'll be able to confirm that you want to launch the application (even if it was not downloaded from the Mac App Store from an Identified Developer).

alphaomega software is plain terrible. Besides most of the apps being truly useless as the end result can be accomplished with leopard's built in features as listed below, their apps are terribly expensive and are ugly and don't even perform well. They just strikeout on every app they have ever attempted.

@AO - Quit making software or focus on ONE project and make it a decent app instead of having 20 useless ones. Sorry, the truth hurts.

Disk Utility > File > New Image from Folder

Select 128 or 254 bit encryption. It's fast, free and totally supported by Apple.
