OmniGroup Backup Personal Edition is a fully functional application. It gives users the ability to back up and restore files from extended Macintosh (HFS+) and Unix (UFS) volumes, as well as set a schedule for unattended backups. The Professional Edition has extra features including the ability to back up Unix network volumes (via NFS) and to create unlimited fileSets and archives.
Omni president Wil Shipley commented, "We are very happy to be providing the backup software for this community -- Mac OS X is a technology in which we believe very strongly. We decided a year ago to assist Apple by writing an application of their choosing for them for free, and this was what they said would help their customers the most. We're very pleased with the results so far, and we have some really cool plans for future versions of Backup, as well."
OmniGroup Backup Professional Edition is available for US$119.95 for a single license, while the Personal Edition is free to users of Mac OS X Server. OmniWeb is available for US$59.95 for a single license. You can find more information about OmniGroup Backup and OmniWeb at he Omni Group web site.
