Icon Carbon Copy Cloner 3.4.3

Clone, synchronize, backup. Schedule and forget it. Try it 'til you trust it.
The key to a successful backup plan is to actually do the backups regularly. When left to a human, the task often gets tacked on to the end of a very long list of other things to do. When you eventually have a catastrophe, the data is simply gone. You know that feeling -- you just lost six years of family photos. Your kids being born, their first birthdays, their first everything. The answer to this is consistent and regular backups, placed on a schedule and handled automatically by your computer.
CCC 3.0 features a new interface designed to make the cloning and backup procedure more intuitive and more responsive. Users have better control over what gets backed up, and are provided with detailed information about the progress of their backup. In addition to general backup, CCC can also clone one hard drive to another, copying every single block or file to create an exact replica of your source hard drive. CCC's block-level copy offers the absolute best fidelity in the industry!

icon DeployStudio 1.0rc17

Saving time is a daily concern for system administrator, especially with the increase of minor interventions requested by end-users: accidentally modified system preferences, third-party applications instability or misconfigured, wrong access rights, viruses, etc...
Mac OS X is stable and robust but the capacity to (re)install completely a workstation or a server in a few minutes following a preset scenario that automatically restores the right disk image, configures and backs up what was planned by the administrator is a real benefit in terms of time and money.
DeployStudio was designed this way, in order to manage flawlessly large deployments of workstations, servers and cluster nodes.

Icon SimpleBackup 1.6.1

SimpleBackup is a very simple and easy to use file backup utility. I wrote it because I wanted a quick-and-easy way to back up all those files that are spread out over the hard disk, in the preferences folder, in the documents folder, certain folders and files in the applications folder, etc... I decided that I didn't want to write a user interface for the utility, so I got the idea of letting the Finder do the work for me by using aliases. The result is a backup program that is actually easy to use! You simply navigate through your hard disk and find the files or entire folders that you want to backup that are buried in the System Folder, Applications, Documents folders etc., and tell SimpleBackup about those files/folders by using aliases.
