professional-grade software for the rest of us, announces significant
upgrades and added features to Data Backup X and Data Backup Classic. Data
Backup X version 1.2.2 and Data Backup Classic version 1.2.2 are now
available for Mac OS X and Mac OS 8.6 to 9.x.

The new version of Data Backup, an easy to use backup utility, automates
the process of backing up important files where now the application will
automatically launch for each programmed action when =ECAutomatic Triggering=
is enabled, eliminating the need to have Data Backup continuously running
(in OS X). Additional features within the programmed actions mode include
Direct Copy and Delete actions, backup with encryption, and the ability
organize programmed actions into groups. Users have four new trigger
options when setting up their programmed actions including performing a
backup at every startup, every shut down, as soon as volumes mount or
continuously in the new permanent mode.

backup their valuable data,=EE states Greg Brewer, Prosoft’s president and
CEO. =ECWith this new release of Data Backup, new added features enhance the
