    Backup Software

    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend some good backup software for the Mac? I have googled abit but i am after some user feedback.

    I would like it to:
    • Support encryption.
    • Good Compression.
    • Able to keep a good log of the backups.
    • Be able to pick individual files to backup.


    I looked at time machine but i would like to select what to backup, not the whole drive.

    What do you use?


    Thanks

    We use ARCHIWARE | PresSTORE Archive - Overview and it seems capable to handle the points you mentioned.

    The hardware that does the backup is the Tandberg Data Storage, uses the 1.6TB x 8 Tapes, so technically you can setup 6 Full Backups over six weeks, say every friday and 2 Incrementals to run alternately from Mon - Thursday, works for us.
