2.0.7
15 April 2013

Online storage solution.

Overview

xTwin (was Twin) is the most flexible online backup solution for OS X, compatible with most Internet servers: FTP, FTPS, SFTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3. It even supports offline backups to external drives.

xTwin is a true Mac product that preserves Finder info, resource forks, ACLs, and privileges, and comes with an elegant user interface and a powerful assistant. It also provides numerous high-end features like AES-256 encryption, efficient bz2 compression, powerful exclusion rules and scheduler, support for splitting large files during network transfers, network-error recovery, individual digital signature for backed-up files, multi-core machine optimization and much more!

xTwin is the best backup solution for OS X users who already have access to online storage (Web hosting, work servers, etc.) or who want to buy their own dedicated online storage, or even users who simply want more control and advanced features than other backup products afford.

The price is now euro 99 ($130 as of today). This is much too steep in my opinion because you also have to pay for the storage space. You could get almost three years of BackBlaze with unlimited data instead, and buy something else with the money you were going to spend on the storage. That said, this app works pretty well with one significant major limitation: It only keeps one version of the data (even the MobileMe Apple Backup program will keep 30 days or so). I don't understand why this limit is built into Twin, because it's my storage space, so I should be allowed to clutter it up with old versions. This seems to be the only application that can back up to MobileMe using encryption and incremental uploads. It's easy to use too (unlike Super Flexible File Sync) and is pretty stable (again, unlike Super Flexible File Sync). However, it's much, much too expensive for what it does.

Their website says "Since January 2012, ADNX is our new name" and that xTwin is "discontinued and no longer supported".

xTwin isn't $19. On the adnX website and on the App Store it's listed at $99.06, quite a bit more (and a deal breaker for me...).

Thanks for the heads-up! I've corrected the price; as of today, I'm seeing $98.67 USD (converted from Euros) on their website.

Hi Warren, You're welcome! :) Maybe they'd be interested in a MUPromo??? ;-)

Have to change my review today: 1.5 crashes. Asked the developer to send me an old version: They told me they "do not keep old versions". Well, well. This does not help if you end up with a non-functioning 1.5.1...

Probably the worst application i ever bought. Ever since first version it randomly shuts down and doesnt backup anymore. I had to keep an eye on the menu to see if it was still there. Kept posting my issues on the developers forum but they kept deleting my posts, saying "there are currently no issues with current realease". Every single negative post, they deleted after a couple of minutes. I couldnt get any support at all. Tried getting my money back to no use. Bad software, even worse developer. Stay away!

Issues cannot be posted to the forums, only to the technical support website. Sorry but it's not true that we do not solve issues reported by customers. See other customers comments. We care about all feedback.

Frenzy, sounds a little weird. I use the software since months with no problems. Even with local encryption and incremential backups to WebDAV servers. Do you ever consider your machine being the culprit? Did you ever try the application with another computer? And no, I do not work for app4mac. Still, I like the product - even more if it would be $30 instead of $60 :)

I tried this out for the Amazon S3 backup. It just doesn't work. It fails after a few seconds. I manually retry and it works for another few seconds. I was hoping to switch from Interarchy 9 to this but it looks like I'm upgrading to Interarchy 10.

Strange as most customers are using it with Amazon S3. Send your feedback to the support team instead of complaining here. We always fix all issues.

All updates are free for lifetime. Divide the price by the numbers of years you will use it with free updates and you will understand the price.

I'm running the latest version of Twin 1.2.1 and a lot of the old issues present in the older reviews appear to be resolved. Its quite stable and can cope with occasional loss of network connection, continuing where it left off (very useful for backups over 40 Gb). The reports are quite verbose if there are errors and it usually just requires a click of a button to redo failures. Twin has a very good, very intuitive interface that offers AES-256 encryption on the fly. On Restoration its handy to have a listing to restore just individual files. The developers seem to be actively improving the software regularly over the last few months.

I thought this program looked very promising and I really wanted to like it. Unfortunately I couldn't get it to work on my Mac to backup on a server over the internet. Despite multiple attempts of contacting the support team via support forum and emails I wasn't able to get a single helpful response within the last 6 weeks (!). So I paid good money for this program, haven't managed to back up a single file yet and am getting more and more annoyed with them. I tried to get my money refunded - also unsuccessfully. Bottom line: Unfortunately this is not a program on which you can rely on for backups and the service and support they offer is absolutely appalling. Nice idea but nothing for serious use!
