SmartBackup 2.2 released
Freeridecoding has released SmartBackup 2.2, adding support for full bootable backups and interface improvements to the data backup utility. Users can use Spotlight 'saved searches' as backup items, or define exclusion to simplify creating dynamic backups. The latest release improves performance as well as Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard support, and includes various bug fixes. SmartBackup 2.2 is priced at $22 and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
SmartBackup features backup presets, the ability to archive changed or deleted files, bootable backups, easy handling of multiple backup sets, and a built-in sync engine. The software also preserves metadata, supports scheduling with iCal or Automator, features a command-line mode, and is optimized for network backups.
