Free Backup Software for Mac - Time Machine

Time Machine is the built-in backup feature of OS X that works with your Mac and an external drive (sold separately) or AirPort Time Capsule. Connect the drive, tell Time Machine to use it, and relax. Time Machine automatically backs up your entire Mac, including system files, applications, accounts, preferences, email messages, music, photos, movies, and documents. But what makes Time Machine different from other backup applications is that it not only keeps a spare copy of every file, it remembers how your system looked on any given day—so you can revisit your Mac as it appeared in the past. Time Machine keeps hourly backups for the past 24 hours, daily backups for the past month, and weekly backups until your backup drive is full.

Get Backup for Mac's well-designed menu and useful features make it a good tool for system and file backups. With more and more information stored on your computer, the need for utilities for backing up important information stored on systems has increased, and this app has some nice options. Despite the fact that the program is freeware, additional functions are available if the user chooses to purchase a special license. Get Backup for Mac opened quickly after being dragged into the Applications folder. The program's main menu was appropriately designed with clear graphics indicating the main buttons. Technical support was also available via a Help drop-down menu and a link to the developer's Web site. The application allows users to create backups of file folders and even includes buttons for common ones, such as photos, music, and documents. For more traditional backups, there is also a menu selection to clone drives, which properly lists the available hard disks and allows a choice of destinations. A drag-and-drop, third menu also allows for different folders to be synched to each other. The program's performance on all of these options during testing was smooth and as fast as expected.

In this way, you can easily create off-site backups without trusting your data to the cloud.
