TimePreserver is a new tool in the battle to keep data safe; an ever more important job for home, student and SOHO users as more precious data - from photos to term reports - is stored on computer. It is designed to complement Time Machine/Time Capsule backup with "offsite" backup protecting the Time Machine/Capsule user from Time Capsule failure, damage or loss.
TimePreserver's place in the backup arsenal: There are many tools for backup, and each has it place. For home, student flat and SOHO users high-end backup solutions like Retrospect is usually overkill. When there are multiple Macs backed up to a shared Time Capsule a TimePreserver-based system requires just one disk, while clone-based backup solutions requires one per Mac. TimePreserver keeps your data under your control and requires no Internet connection or bandwidth, unlike Internet based backup solutions.
