Email Backup/Backup Pro 2
Maza Digital has updated several of its programs, beginnning with Email Backup Pro, now at v2.0. The software runs scheduled backups of messages from apps like Mail, Entourage, Eudora and Thunderbird, and is also able to replace existing databases and perform compression. The second edition is a major overhaul, with a new interface and manager, along with new engines for both backup and restoration. Schedule timing can additionally be more complex. The software is $10 new, but cheaper as an upgrade.
Maza has also released a corresponding free version of Email Backup, which drops the Pro moniker. New here are an improved interface and backup engine, as well as Entourage 2008 support, and a Sparkle-based updater. Both the Pro and standard versions of the software require Mac OS X 10.4.
Finally, iTunes Consolidator -- used to to find and integrate "stray" music tracks -- has been updated to v1.5. This brings with it a new interface, a faster search engine and enhanced ID Tag reading, although it now also requires Mac OS X Leopard. It is $5 new or free to previous owners.
