Ratings and Reviews
FTP backup seems to be broken
First the good -- it is easy to configure, fairly intuitive (though the look and feel is a bit clunky and not very OSX 'native'). If it worked it would be just fine. It does the sort of things I want -- selected directories only, scheduled backups etc. I don't think the options ofr compression are useful -- why would you NOT use compression, since at worse it would have no effect.
I don't have an external disk to try it on, so all these comments relate to FTP only.
Unfortunately for me, trying to back up a relatively small directory tree ( ~600Mb) to an FTP server, it fails, badly. The program is using 100% of my CPU, making the machine unusable, and after two hours it has transferred a handful of files to the FTP server (at this rate it will take about three days).
It is NOT the FTP server as I tested with a really dumb Python script before looking for something more professional.
I'll keep futzing to try to make it work, but as it stands it is not ready for use over FTP. I eagerly await the next release.
Nice features, good value
I have been successfully using Remote Backup Magic, for several months, as "offsite" storage for critical files. Remote Backup Magic encrypts and compresses the files to remote servers (in my case, my hosted website, which I have storage that I do not use). It is a good, non-provider specific (e.g. Mozy, Carbonite) solution for "offsite" backup.
A nice enhancement would be a new backup option (in addition to "Full", "Incremental" and "Full Incremental") which would periodically create a full backup (clearing all existing ones) and then create incremental ones (of only changed files) until the periodic threshold was met (e.g. a full monthly backup and daily incremental ones or full backup and 15 incremental ones).
It backs up files
It backs up my files to our PC server but the auto backup feature doesn't work so I have to do it manually. The reason I bought the software was so it would back up my files automatically, if they fix that feature it would be worth 4 stars. I set it up so it backs up all my files each time which seems to work better but regardless I have to manually hit the backup button each time.
