LR Backup for Mac Publisher's description
from Matt Dawson
The LR Backup plugin simplifies backing up your Lightroom environment.
The LR Backup plugin simplifies backing up your Lightroom environment. It does this by adding the ability to backup Lightroom's configuration files, and compress Lightroom's catalog backups, from within Lightroom itself. These tasks can occur automatically as the program starts or manually as required. Suggestions for using these capabilities can be found here.
Lightroom's configuration is stored in numerous files scattered around your hard drive. The configuration backup collates the various preference, preset, template, camera profile, lens profile, Camera Raw and other setting files used by Lightroom into a single compressed backup file. This can help you quickly find and restore your preferred Lightroom configuration when your system crashes, Lightroom preferences become corrupted, or you wish to move Lightroom to a different system.
While Lightroom already includes the capability to backup your catalog the resulting files can be quite large and quickly consume your available disk space. Fortunately these backups compress well, frequently reducing to 10% of their former size when zipped. The catalog backup compression feature helps you automate this process and conserve space for your image files or more frequent backups to further reduce the risk of lost work.
Automatic backup tasks are performed in the background as Lightroom starts. Regularity can be independently managed for each backup task so it is a simple matter to compress each catalog backup immediately at startup yet only backup your configuration once a week.
