2. Double click on the application icon. Pressing the "Open Backup Folder" button will open the folder inside the application where your backed-up files are stored.
3. Configuring which files and folders to backup is as simple as clicking the "Open Alias Folder" and placing aliases for backup items, by holding Apple and Option keys, then dragging and dropping into the SeafordBackup's alias folder. Making alias's of items on mounted servers works too.
4. Press "Do a Backup" and the SeafordBackup application will do a powerful UNIX incremental backup that maintains file hierarchical structure, not a slower Finder styled backup.
The result is hierarchical folder structures of files and folders that are hidden from view. Just launch the SeafordBackup application and select the default button "Open Backup Folder" and you get access to your backup files.
