Developer's Description

Parachute is a flexible, powerful backup tool that allows you make automated backups of your files. With Parachute you can select files individually, set your own schedule and backup to both local disks and remote servers.

Pick Your Destination:
With Parachute you can backup your data to both local and remote locations, including your hard disk, external disks, FTP/SFTP servers, USB memory sticks, network volumes, your iDisk and pretty much anything your Mac can connect to.

Schedule Your Backups:
You choose when Parachute should backup your data. Set hourly, daily, weekly or monthly schedules for your backups. And of course you can also make your backups manually.

Multiple Backups:
Parachute gives you the ultimate flexibility to backup your data. Create multiple backup tasks for different files and folders on your Mac, and pick a location of your choice for each task.

Step By Step:
Parachute lets you speed up your backups by only backing up what's changed since your last backup. Plus you can keep any number of past backups so you can always go back in time.
