[prMac.com] Wellington, New Zealand - Freeridecoding today is thrilled to announce the release of SmartBackup 3.3, a new version of its alternative lightweight backup, sync and clone application for OS X. SmartBackup gives you more control than Time Machine and is easier to set up than most of its competitors.
SmartBackup syncs multiple source items to a destination folder on an external harddrive, flashdrive or network share, or creates a bootable clone of your system. SmartBackup features a modern 64 bit sync engine that only copies what has changed after the initial sync and is very fast in updating your backup or system clone. SmartBackup can archive deleted or changed files during the backup. The archive can easily be searched from within the application and the user can choose which version of a file should be restored.
SmartBackup can use Spotlight Saved Searches to define what needs to be backed up or what should be excluded, a powerful way to greatly simplify your backup configuration. SmartBackup can be automated using iCal, Automator or via LaunchDaemons. SmartBackup's commandline makes it painless to include it in shell scripts.

* Updated interface inspired by iOS
