[prMac.com] Cambridge, United Kingdom - Dalamser today is pleased to announce the immediate availability of TimePreserver 1.4 from the Mac App Store, and TimePreserver Direct 1.3 from Dalamser's web site. TimePreserver 1.4 (Direct 1.3) has a special launch price of US$24.99, upgrades for existing users are free.
What's New - Customized Archiving:
Previously the items on a Time Capsule were classified into just two groups: Time Machine backups, and General Items (files stored when using the Time Capsule as a shared disk). Either or both of these groups could be archived.
TimePreserver 1.4 (Direct 1.3) introduces an optional Customize step which presents a list of each individual Mac's Time Machine backup, along with General Items. Any combination may be selected for archiving. This enables fine tuning of what is archived. Useful, for example, if your Time Capsule backs up Macs which don't require offsite protection, or some Macs are used for critical work requiring more frequent offsite backup.
Customized selections also allow different archive disks to be maintained for different subsets of Time Machine backups on your Time Capsule, especially useful when backing up large numbers of Macs to a 3TB Time Capsule. TimePreserver's behind-the-scenes recent job tracking now also tracks any custom selections; attach your offsite archive disk and launch TimePreserver and the custom selections will be restored.
Under-the-hood improvements have been made to TimePreserver, including its handling of unusual events, resulting in an overall performance improvement.
TimePreserver Lite has also been upgraded to 1.4. It includes the general improvements found in TimePreserver 1.4 but not the custom archiving feature. TimePreserver Lite remains free.
TimePreserver - The Next Step in Backup For The Small User:
Time Machine in conjunction with Time Capsule provide an excellent first backup solution for home, student flat and SOHO users. With minimal setup one or more Macs can be protected by Time Machine and a single Time Capsule. The acclaimed TimePreserver enhances such a setup with a second level; multiple, off site, backups of the Time Capsule itself. Your files are precious, protect them!
