fwbackups™ has a rich interface that is both powerful and easy to use. Here are just a few of its many features:
* Simple interface: Configuring new backups or restoring documents from a previous backup is a breeze.
* Cross-platform: It doesn't matter if you're running Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X or Linux -- fwbackups will protect you from data loss. This also makes fwbackups handy if you'd like to move your files from one computer to another -- just make a backup on one machine and restore it on the other.
* Flexible backup configuration: Our development team didn't sacrifice any features when designing fwbackups. Choose between a variety of backup format and backup modes, including the archive format and clone copy mode for recovering data off of damaged disks (clone mode coming soon in version 1.44).
* Backup your files to any computer: fwbackups can backup files to locally attached media like USB memory keys or to a remote computer such as a backup server, making it perfect for both home and corporate environments.
* Backup the entire computer: Create archives images of so that the entire operating system, documents and applications are safe
* Scheduled and one-time backups: Choose to run a backup once (on demand) or periodically so you never have to worry about losing your data again.
* Speed: Make your backups faster by copying only the changes since your last backup with the incremental backup modes.
* Exclude files or folders: Don't waste space on your disks by backing up files you don't need.
* Organized and clean: fwbackups takes care of the organization of backups, including the removal of expired ones so you don't have to worry about organizing the backups. It also lets you select a backup to restore from with a list of dates.

It looks really useful, I’m busy installing in right now.
I have been doing my back-ups directly from terminal and haven’t had any issues with that, but it will be easier with this tool. Thanks
Great tip, I will be moving TF2 and CIV4 onto a new MacBook Air when they come out
