Backup Buddy is a small backup application focused on simplicity and ease of use. It bridges the gap between Apple's Time Machine and complex full-featured backup solutions which have dozens of settings.

Just like Time Machine, Backup Buddy will create a chronological archive of your data, each time updating only the changes. But unlike Time Machine, in Backup Buddy you can control exactly what will be backed up as well as when and where the backup will occur. Also you can add multiple backups, each with a different destination.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. I purchased it about 1 month ago. Installed in my server that is managed by Rack911. My server is supposed to be 100% compatible with this software but the software did not work.

I went to their support site forum ... and saw that many people were having exactly the same problem (infinite constant pings). Nevertheless I wrote a post asking for help ... after 48 hours of not getting a response and seeing that nobody else was getting a response either I asked for a refund.

The company basically IGNORED MY REQUEST of a refund. I went to Paypal and filed a claim but that did not go well either as this is a NONTANGIBLE ITEM.

BASICALLY iThemes STOLE $100 from me. I warn you ... DO NOT BUY BACKUP BUDDY!!!

Very contemporary GUI, very well thought out features, honest product placement (midpoint between Time Machine and industrial backup software), plus it's proudly made in Greece.

If I hadn't invested in Synchronize Pro, this $4.99 app would be an instant favorite.

Backup Buddy is a small backup application focused on simplicity and ease of use. It bridges the gap between Apple's Time Machine and complex full-featured backup solutions which have dozens of settings.

Just like Time Machine, Backup Buddy will create a chronological archive of your data, each time updating only the changes. But unlike Time Machine, in Backup Buddy you can control exactly what will be backed up as well as when and where the backup will occur. Also you can add multiple backups, each with a different destination.

You can also choose to automatically place your backup data inside a disk image file, which can be very useful in situations where you want to store your data on a network volume that is not Mac-formatted (an SMB server of example).

Some of the key features of backup Buddy are:
  • Designed to be simple. No complicated settings; we make all the hard decisions for you.
  • Gives you full control over the really important stuff: choosing what you want to backup, where you want to save your backup, and when you want the backup to occur.
  • Creates chronological backups by using hard links to save disk space, just like Apple's Time Machine.
  • Can save your data inside a disk image, making it easier to safely store your data on non-Mac network volumes.
