Warehouse offers a lightweight single window interface for backing up files from your Mac to any removable media device such as external hard drives, USB memory sticks or even other Macs connected on a network.

As a more fine tuned method than TimeMachine's one size fits all approach, Warehouse uses a task based system which lets you create an unlimited number of tasks each with source folders, destination location and an option of 4 unique backup modes.

I watched the instruction video on your website and I have to say it looks really good!

I was wondering: what happens when a scheduled backup is missed (e.g. due to the destination drive not being available)?

This a good question which I don't think I addressed in the manual.

The backup will simply fail and not be recorded into the log (if the Mac was off) or be recorded but without error message if the device was not able to be accessed. If you noticed backups were not added to the log or the dates of the backup destination don't match the source folders this is an indication the backup was not successful. However, no data loss or other problems will occur if the destination is not available.

The lack of detailed error reporting from scheduled backups will be addressed in the next version within the next few weeks if not less.

Thank you for expressing your interest.

Warehouse offers a lightweight single window interface for backing up files from your Mac to any removable media device such as external hard drives, USB memory sticks or even other Macs connected on a network.

As a more fine tuned method than TimeMachine's one size fits all approach, Warehouse uses a task based system which lets you create an unlimited number of tasks each with source folders, destination location and an option of 4 unique backup modes.

Features:
  • Schedule Backups. Warehouse lets you schedule tasks to run in the background (using a variety of scheduling options) so the application itself can usually remain closed while it backs up important files quickly and quietly while you work.
  • Incremental Archiving. Dated folders containing only changed files are incrementally backed up thus saving disk space. If you want to restore old archives browse them like other folders in the Finder and copy out files you want restored.
  • Synchronize Folders. Easily synchronize the contents of two folders on any destination by transferring only newer files to each destination. The perfect solution for keeping your desktop at home in synch with your laptop at the office.
  • UNIX at the Core. The core of Warehouse uses stable and trusted UNIX utilities so you can trust your data is safely transferred in the most efficient way possible.
