Synk 6 vs Time Machine

Decimus Software has unveiled Synk 6, boasting the same functionality as Apple's recently-announced Time Machine backup software. The public beta uses the same technology as Apple's Time Machine to track changes, according to Decimus, and can schedule backups automatically at any frequency desired. Synk 6 also maintains old versions of all files, allowing users to selectively restore any version from any point in time. "The only thing we're missing is a space-themed restore interface, as we don't exactly have Apple's budget for graphic artists," said Decimus. Synk 6 does not require dedication of the entire volume, or that the volume use the HFS+ file system. Additionally, backup copies are bootable with Synk 6 because the data is not stored in a custom format. Synk 6 beta is available now, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
