Freeridecoding today announced a major update for its backup tool SmartBackup, an application to backup personal data to hard drives, network sharepoints, webDAV, USB sticks, iPods, etc.. It supports the use of Spotlights (saved searches) as backup items or to define exclusion which makes creating dynamic backups simple. Changes in version 2.1 include: launchable with superuser privileges; improved cleanup and archiving, handling of metadata, and backup to network shares; updated interface; new Automator action; and more.
