mac default iconBackup Bouncer For Mac Publisher's description

Check if your backups really work

Check if your backups really work

Hey there OS X user! Do you back up your files? Of course you do! (Right? Right???) But do your backups work? Really? Are you sure? Have you checked?

Backup Bouncer is here to help keep the ugly backup tools out of the club. It's a command-line-based test suite that makes it easy to find out how bad (or good, if you're lucky) your backup software is.

Backup Bouncer aims to be a comprehensive test for preservation of all Mac OS X file metadata.

The initial release tests for preservation of:
В· Basic permissions, ownership, and timestamps
В· Symbolic links
В· Ownership of symbolic links
В· Hard links
В· Resource forks
В· Finder flags
В· Finder locks
В· Finder creation date
В· BSD flags
В· Extended attributes (on files, directories, and symbolic links)
В· Access Control Lists (on files, directories, and symbolic links)
В· Devices
В· Combinations of the above

What's New in This Release:

В· Removed ctool to solve Snow Leopard build problems. Fixed the order of operations in the combo-test.

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status:
Program Install Support: install and uninstall
