TimePreserver For Mac Publisher's description
TimePreserver is designed to do one complex task easily
TimePreserver is designed to do one complex task easily: making archives of your Time Machine backups stored on a Time Capsule. In keeping with Time Machine there is no complicated setup, no myriad of options. It just works.
which is why backups are important. Whether a precious photo, vital term paper, or SOHO invoice is accidentally deleted; or your MacвЂ™s hard drive fails losing everything; a backup is there to get your items back. Time Machine and Time Capsule together provide a simple and effective backup solution for one or more Mac desktops and laptops, keeping your data safe.
should you suffer a disaster which takes out both your Macs and your backup what then? Business, colleges, etc. have long kept multiple and вЂњoff siteвЂќ backups to protect against data loss.
If you are a home, student or SOHO user relying on Time Machine and Time Capsule then the provided solution is the Time Capsule archive function, which can take hours and hours to complete during which time Time Machine is blocked and the Time Capsule inaccessible.
TimePreserver makes multiple, off site, archiving of the Time Capsule convenient.
* Attach an external disk to your Mac, run TimePreserver, and then store the disk away from your Mac and Time Capsule.
* Re-attach the disk and run TimePreserver to update the archive.
* Use multiple external discs in rotation to provide extra protection. A minimum of two is good, always keeping one in a different location.
* Complete archive of the Time Capsule without it being unusable for hours.
* Integrity of the Time Machine backups is protected, TimePreserver understands Time Machine backups unlike generic backup applications.
What's New in This Release:New support for certain unusual disks:
If the free space on a disk is greater than its total capacity then disc corruption might be expected. However some unusual disks declare an incorrect (low) capacity, which can result in the free space appearing to be greater than the capacity. This update adds support for such disks.
TimePreserver will usually disallow any disk as an archive destination if the declared capacity is too small to hold the archive.
Users will now be prompted if a disk whose free space is greater than its capacity is present, and may choose to allow its use if they know the declared capacity is invalid.
If all the disks are normal TimePreserver behaves as before and no difference will be noticed.
System Requirements:PPC / Intel, Mac OS X 10.5 or later.
