Prosoft Engineering has made a fine Mac backup software program. What the program lacks in polish, it makes up for with lightening fast syncing. 


Data Backup 3 is a powerful utility that allows you to backup, 

restore and synchronize your valuable data with minimal effort. 

Whether you are a new computer user or a seasoned professional, 

Data Backup 3 offers you just the right amount of power, 

flexibility and ease-of-use to help you protect your files fast.

 Backup Features:

Data Backup packs a punch with all the features it manages to cram into its tiny frame. Start with the quick drop down menu; it comes preloaded with a handful of typical settings. These are great for getting your data safe from the get-go before you experiment with all the parameters. Once you know what you need for your system, you can easily exchange and alter these presets with your own settings, creating a quick list for all your sync needs. As you alter and play with the settings available, the program will prompt you about saving each setting profile before you switch to another, making sure you don’t loose that blessed setting that works exactly how you want it to for your system with this Mac backup software.

Below the action bar is a running log screen that outlines the parameters you’ve set up with the program allowing you to double-check everything before hitting the start button. This is a handy feature that can save you tons of time before you start a large sync between volumes. As you move further down the program you can establish file filters and pre/post-scripting via the side tabs. Switching the action type and the destination type will alter the bottom half of the screen allowing you to alter the parameters such as sources and destinations. They also include a handful of options such as password encryption via checkable boxes depending on what backup you choose. These are important features that can easily be overlooked in Mac backup software, so make sure you take an extra minute to scope everything out.
