Apple Backup in Mac OS X

Apple Backup is a simple Mac OS X-only software program made by Apple Inc. for file backups. It is available through Apple's .Mac collection of Internet services. Backup can be used in connection with either a user's .Mac iDisk or the Macintosh's CD-RW or DVD-R drive to make safe, archival copies of critical files and folders.

The initial versions of Backup were regarded as feature-sparse and frequently unstable. However, on November 5, 2003 Apple released Backup 2.0, which adds a few new features and promises to be far more reliable than its predecessors.

Though both allow for the creation of archive copies of important data, Backup is seen as not being feature-rich enough to compete with full-fledged backup programs such as Retrospect by Dantz.
