Now Apple have taken away iDisc and MobileMe BackUp seems a complete waste of time ... Does not seem possible to use with iCloud. Apple have become control freaks ...

Fundamentally flawed. Users are prompted to create a plan to back up their home directory to MobileMe. Well...great...except that each plan is limited to 90 megs. Kind of silly, ey? OK, so having done MobileMe support for a few months (until something better came along after I relocated to TX), I can tell you that many, many people have been burned by this Backup application, when used in conjunction with MobileMe. Call MobileMe support (or chat them through the Apple Support forum) and ask a tech if it's possible to do a complete restore using Backup archives stored in MobileMe. Go ahead... Free. Yes. Good. No. Get Carbon Copy Cloner or  SuperDuper... Don Montalvo, TX

I've actually been using Backup for several years and it has done a fairly good job as far as my needs go. I've got Time Machine going all the time and I also make a clone of my hard drive twice a week and of my admin folder twice a week using paid for apps. I use Backup primarily to run some of the built in scripts that comes with it. Don't know if these are needed, but it does give me peace of mind knowing they are there. One thing I really do not like about Backup: it always opens the Finder when it loads. I use Pathfinder all the time, and so have Finder shut down. Backup overrides that (as does the mounting of disks). Maybe this is not a Backup thing, but a Mac thing in that every time a disk mounts, Finder has to do it. Anyway. It's a pretty good app for my purposes. And it's free. Can't beat that!

This program is such a complete and utter joke -- does anyone use MobileMe for backup? Most importantly, the program is barely being updated -- when was the 3.1 update released? Two years ago?

Frustating enought backups are limited to 100 mb, unless you upgrade to full subscription to .Mac. Doesn't matter wether you're backing to .Mac or not, full subscription is required.

I just don't understand why this app can't back up everything. Why not include Applications? Yeah, I know it will do the ones in my home folder...

I like Backup because it is tidy and allows as much or as little customization as I like. It is easy to use and it works. I have restored from it successfully several times. I particularly like that it gives the option of choosing from several versions of any given file, based on the date. That way, in case I backup something that is not quite right, I still have an earlier version that I like to choose from instead. So I can't overwrite a good file with a bad one, just because it's newer. I like it.

It should also be mentioned that Backup 3.1 is now a Universal Binary. The previous version (3.0.1) was not.

Apple Backup 3.1 seems innocuous enough. Works on my loaded TiBook and Dual 2GHz G5 Power Mac (what else?) with Tiger.4-just like 3.0...imagine that!

Can be as simple or powerful as you want it to be. Easy selection of which folders/files to copy and not to copy. Pretty good app, although can be a bit slow at times. GUI is clean and seems good to me. I use it for quick weekly backups to a FireWire drive of my most important files. As long as it does its job when restoring, I'm happy.
