Backup Bouncer... Hey there OS X user! Do you back up your files? Of course you do! Right? Right?? But do your backups work? Really? Are you sure? Have you checked?

Backup Bouncer is here to help keep the ugly backup tools out of the club. It's a command-line-based test suite that makes it easy to find out how bad (or good, if you're lucky) your backup software is. It aims to be a comprehensive test for preservation of all OS X file metadata. The initial release tests for preservation of:

  • Basic permissions, ownership, and timestamps
  • Symbolic links
  • Ownership of symbolic links
  • Hard links
  • Resource forks

What's New

Version 0.2.0:
  • Removed ctool to solve Snow Leopard build problems.
  • Fixed the order of operations in the combo-test.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later
