Editors' Review

by   / May 21, 2013

Backuplist+ for Mac lacks advanced features, but performs basic backup operations well. It's worth a look for those who want more flexibility than native backup utilities, such as Time Machine, provide.

The 2.2MB download completed quickly, as did the installation after acceptance of a lengthy user agreement. Unfortunately, Backuplist+ for Mac offers no user instructions, which was a disappointment due to the rather hard to decipher menu. The application has no graphics or clearly labeled main buttons. A bar at the top allows the user to select the backup file's destination. Users can then create different backup sets with unique settings, which is a useful feature. The files on which the backup is based are chosen from a second menu, which again has no labels. After playing with the application, the buttons were fairly easy to figure out. Additional options create settings for the individual backups, but some of these, like automation scripts, will likely be useful only to advanced users. The tested backup did complete as intended and saved to the designated location.

Backuplist+ for Mac works well once you get the hang of it, but we wouldn't recommend it to novice users, who may find the lack of direction and complexity of the more advanced features to be too much of a barrier.
