Back-In-Time beta released
TRI-EDRE has released a beta version of Back-In-Time, a utility meant to act as a complement to Apple's Time Machine. Users are able to perform functions not directly supported within Time Machine, such as basic drag-and-drop copying of files from backup, and restoring to locations other than the original folders. It can also determine how many versions of a file are in storage, and when a file was deleted.
Like Time Machine, Back-In-Time is able to salvage files, folders and complete disks; it is further able to recreate bootable disks in a previous state. The beta software costs $30, but is said to be fully-functional and without any known problems. The pricing is expected to rise to $50 in November.
