A new partnership has been formed that will see Intego's backup software included with all of LaCie's new storage devices. Intego will be providing two backup programs, Backup Assistant and Backup Manager Pro, both derived from Personal Backup X5. Assistant will be included with all LaCie hard drives and some of its network storage devices, and Manager Pro will be provided with LaCie's professional network storage devices.
Both programs are tools for specifically for Mac OS X. Assistant can back up files to hard disks and network storage devices, while Manager Pro can make backups to any hard drive, network volume, iDisk, optical disc or iPod. Pro is also capable of making bootable backups of a Mac OS X startup volume, and syncing data between two computers.
