    backup apps for mac

    For all Mac users: I recently made a quick backup of my hard drive in an external hard drive. Then, I came to figure that it IS important to actually have backups of your files.

    So I've read a lot of reviews and made some research, but am still not sure of what's the best option for a backup app.

    Any recommendations?

    Time machine is likely the easiest since it comes with OSX. I find it does the job well enough and requires little effort to set-up.

    Another one I use is Chronosync. Time Machine doesn't work with servers, so I use that for synching my files at work to my own drive.

    I also use Time Machine, with 2 external hard-drives and alternate between the two for greater protection. Seems to work very well.

    I use:

    1. Time Machine (good for retrieving different versions of files)
    2. Backblaze for offsite backup
    3. SuperDuper for a bootable copy
