TimePreserver — $24.99

Release: 1.7.3 Release History

This version supports full incremental archiving of your Time Capsule, only those items which have changed since the last operation are copied. Furthermore an individual Mac is only prevented from backing up using Time Machine while its own backup is being archived.

These two features mean that TimePreserver is dramatically faster then TimePreserver Lite for second and subsequent operations, reducing days to hours. The impact on individual Macs is also greatly reduced due to the sorter periuod Time Machine is prevented from backing up.

TimePreserver Lite — Free

Release: 1.7.3 Release History

This version provides non-incremental archiving of your Time Capsule, every item on the Time Capsule is always copied. Time Machine is also prevented from backing up any attached Mac for the duration of the operation to ensure integrity.

An archive can take a long time, easily over a day for a full 2Tb Time Capsule.

This version operates in two modes:

  1. Before purchase it operates in evaluation mode, which is similar to TimePreserver Lite. During evaluation TimePreserver archives to a Mac-attached external disk, but otherwise performs like the Time Capsule archive function - no archive updating and fulltime Time Machine lock out - while demonstrating the benefits gained if registered.

    You may purchase at any time from within TimePreserver.

  2. After purchase this version supports full incremental archiving of your Time Capsule, only those items which have changed since the last operation are copied. Furthermore an individual Mac is only prevented from backing up using Time Machine while its own backup is being archived.
