Product Announcement – MacDaddy has released Mac Backup Guru 6.0, an important update to their innovative backup app for Mac OS X. The app offers direct cloning, synchronization, and incremental snapshots of data. All three backup functions can backup any amount of data, from single files to entire volumes of data. The version 6.0 release offers a number of improvements, including faster backups, user interface improvements, an updated copy engine, and an improved incremental backup process.
Mac Backup Guru offers a clean, easy-to-use interface, making it simple for anyone to safely backup their important data. Users can easily clone a drive, synchronize their backups, and even create incremental snapshots of their data, all from the app’s easy-to-follow, animated interface.
- Simple, reliable utility to create copies of files
- Incremental Snapshots, which use about one tenth of the space of a standard backup and are about 10X faster
- Copy & Paste a bootable drive in the Finder (OS X 10.10 and higher)
- Easy to use, animated user interface
- Resumable Backups – Interrupt and restart backups again at any time
- Automatic Backups – Back up a hard drive by simply a plugging in a backup drive
- Synchronized Backups – Any new items are copied to the backup; any items not on the source are moved to the destination drive’s trash
Mac Backup Guru makes keeping important files backed up easier than ever. Users no longer have to wait for a backup to finish before getting resuming their work. The app runs quietly in the background, (using minimal resources), efficiently making bootable backups of the Mac file system, while the users can continue to work on other important things. Backups can also be easily scheduled for any time of day, so there’s no need to worry about remembering to backup any new work. If the app isn’t running at the scheduled backup time, Mac Backup Guru will start up in the background and begin the backup.
Creating bootable backups with Mac Backup Guru is just a matter of a few clicks of the mouse. Simply select a volume to backup, and then select the destination volume. The app will create a bootable copy of the original volume. Users can then boot their Mac from the external backup, (if needed), by simply holding down the Option key while their Mac boots up.
Mac Backup Guru is intelligent. If the backup drive isn’t attached to the Mac when it’s time for a scheduled backup, there is nothing to worry about. Backup Guru will automatically run the next time it sees that drive attached. The app will even notify you if there is a backup pending when it opens. Restoring from a backup is just as easy; simply select which backup to restore from, and which drive to restore to. Mac Backup Guru does the rest, quickly and efficiently restoring all of the backed up data to the destination drive.
