Review: Create drive backups and clones with Get Backup for Mac

Save backups of your drives using Get Backup for Mac.

Get Backup for Mac's well-designed menu and useful features make it a good tool for system and file backups. With more and more information stored on your computer, the need for utilities for backing up important information stored on systems has increased, and this app has some nice options.

Despite the fact that the program is freeware, additional functions are available if the user chooses to purchase a special license. Get Backup for Mac opened quickly after being dragged into the Applications folder. The program's main menu was appropriately designed with clear graphics indicating the main buttons. Technical support was also available via a Help drop-down menu and a link to the developer's Web site. The application allows users to create backups of file folders and even includes buttons for common ones, such as photos, music, and documents. For more traditional backups, there is also a menu selection to clone drives, which properly lists the available hard disks and allows a choice of destinations. A drag-and-drop, third menu also allows for different folders to be synched to each other. The program's performance on all of these options during testing was smooth and as fast as expected.

For those looking for a functional backup utility, Get Backup for Mac's easy-to-use menu and features make it a good choice for any user.
