Make transactional copies of data.

Overview

Immortal Files doesn't just make a backup, it creates transactional copies of data. This means that your backup will always remain intact, regardless of losses of connection with the backup storage device. Say, for example, you create a backup on an SFTP storage device which you have at home but, because the volume of data is too large, the backup doesn't finish copying. You close your laptop and leave for work. After you return home, the backup will resume from its stopping point. Or say the electricity goes out while you are making a backup. Transactional backup ensures that your data will be intact. Transactional backup in Immortal Files is based on the fact that operations in a file system are sequential. If part of a command is not executed for some reason, after restarting, Immortal Files will roll back your backup to its state before beginning the transaction. This allows you to never lose the structure of the backup. All backups which Immortal Files creates are executed in the transactional method. There is also a log record which allows you to see what happened, and when it happened. FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, SMB, and AFP protocols are supported.

This is a unique type of software designed mainly to make backups or store data on offsite media such as an FTP site. But unlike most other similar backup utilities this one has two important features: 1. If left running in the background it can detect changes in source and immediately transfer the changed files to the backup destination. It presently supports local folders, USB storage, Apple/Windows networks, FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, and Box. 2. You can select sources by file or folder from any drive currently mounted. Most software like this only allows access to a single source drive at a time. Data can be restored fully or file by file. The latter is restored to a special destination folder located in the local Downloads folder. The software is still in a beta stage of development but all features seem to work. The developer has been excellent providing immediate support and fixing any reported bugs. There is a learning curve, but so far it's not too steep. The best part, unless the developer changes this in the future, is the software is FREE!

Very happy I discovered this app. Bought it one day ago. Use it for encrypted backups to external HD's and to a cloudservice. Seems to be similar to Arq, though Arq supports less different cloud services.
Unfortunately one cannot backup to a cloud service and an external disk at the same time. But different backup settings can be saved.
Immortal Files has a slight learning curve, but it is very doable. GUI is OK, but could use a makeover. Immortal Files is available for Windows also.
BTW, Elsewhere on the web, I found Immortal Files discounted for $19.

Does this use binary diffs to minimize backup sizes and transfers and to allow a nice chain for undoing things? I'd love to use this if I could step back versions of PSD's or bundle files as well without breaking the "bank" with too many darn oversized files.

Right now, it does not have binary diffs. I am thinking to implement this, but it is not really easy. As I know when when you save photoshop files, it rewrite whole file. This way It is not easy to extract the information were changed, because some of the data may be shifted.

I'm really glad you're researching this @Immortal Files. It is indeed tricky, but I think doable. I can think of a couple of ways to potentially handle this that might require a little trickery and leveraging of system calls. Let me know if you'd like to brainstorm some.

Fully featured. Free (wow). It operates the same way I would have done it if I coded it. Supports a bunch of different storage formats, even swift!

Storage formats? Do you mean protocols? And what does Swift have to do with anything?
