Latest Update Offers Mac Users Faster Backups and New Features

Paris, September 20, 2005 – Intego, the Macintosh security specialist,
today announced the latest version of Intego Personal Backup X, its backup,
synchronization and volume cloning solution for Mac OS X. Personal Backup
X4 version 10.4 incorporates numerous features designed to provide faster
backups and improved ease-of-use. The new features that have been
introduced to Personal Backup X4 enhance the overall backup procedure for
users, making it faster and more efficient. Personal Backup X4 can manually
or automatically back up files, synchronize data between two computers or
volumes, and clone bootable Mac OS X volumes. Users can choose from
one-click operations or custom-defined scripts.

Backups, synchronizations and clones can be carried out with a click of the
mouse. Alternatively, users can create scripts and define exceptions,
select multiple sources, set schedules, and even clone their Mac OS X
start-up volume to ensure they have a bootable backup at all times.
