BackupLoupe helps you analyze the time and space used by Apple's Time Machine facility and gives you greater control over the backup process. It can quickly identify the items which take up the most space. Its history feature shows how many versions of an item are available and when they were saved, as well as allowing quick navigation between versions. Drag and drop can be used to restore items to any location. Backed up items can be revealed in the Finder. File types are instantly identified. Files can be previewed and opened. Items can be excluded from future backups without opening Time Machine's preferences. Multiple Time Machine disks can be handled, as can backups in non-standard locations.
BackupEDGE provides live system backup and restoration and includes the RecoverEDGE Crash Recovery package. By using this tool, you can create emergency recovery diskettes to rebuild your system in the case of a catastrophic hardware failure. RecoverEDGE handles the details of reconstructing your FDisk, divvy, and/or slice tables, rebuilding your filesystems, and restoring your data, even if your hard drive size and / or geometry has changed. RecoverEDGE uses your live system backups, so there's no need to shut down your system in order to protect it.
The RAZip bitstream format was designed to provide a faster random access to compressed data than what is currently possible using the GZIP format. Its major features include fast random access to compressed data, freedom from patents, single-pass coding/decoding using a bounded amount of intermediate storage, the ability to choose from one of many algorithms for compression, encryption, or error correction, and comprehensive support for Unix file metadata, Macintosh file metadata, and arbitrary file metadata.
I(2) Drive is an online storage solution that allows personal and corporate users to manage their important information from anywhere. It provides client and server software for accessing and sharing files through a Web interface and WebDAV clients either as a hosted service or an in-house install.
The GNU Tar Autoloader Patch allows you to automate tape loading (during writing) on any autoloader that supports changing to the next tape with the "mt offline" command. This only has an effect during backup. During restore, you will still have to manually change the tape because tar hops back and forth various times. It behaves exactly as upstream except during a write operation (using the "c" flag) with multiple tapes (using the "M" flag).
