Key Features

Secure Backup the Easy Way

Secure Backups the Easy Way

Create backups using drag-and-drop templates for iTunes, Mail, Address Book, Documents, and iPhoto. Choose between a full, versioned, or incremental (Pro) backup and even encrypt it using AES-128, AES-256, Blowfish, or Triple DES (Pro). Just set up an automated backup schedule and choose to archive your files to an external disk, network volume, or CD and DVD, and let Get Backup keep your data safe. Later, restore archives on any computer without having Get Backup installed.

Bootable Backups via Cloning

Bootable Backups via Cloning

Migrating to a new disk has never been easier or faster. With the cloning features, clone your hard drive to get a backup disk that can be booted up at any moment. If the disk in your Mac fails, just take it out and replace it with the clone disk to get back to work without losing any time. Or, if you're waiting for a new disk, boot up using the clone as an external drive. Say goodbye to long, tedious restore processes!

Keep Folders in Sync

Keep Folders in Sync

Synchronize files and folders on your Mac with another computer or mounted drive using the sync features. Sync in one direction or update files in both locations using bidirectional (Pro) synchronization. As with backing up files, sync projects can be scheduled to run at a certain time on any day, so Get Backup does the work for you.
