Be smart – backup different. Freeridecoding announces a major update for
its straightforward backup tool SmartBackup v2.2.

to harddrives, network sharepoints, webDAV, usb sticks, iPods etc.

supports the use of Spotlights “saved searches” as backup items or to
define exclusion which makes creating dynamic backups (all protected iTunes
files, all documents changed this week, etc) very simple. SmartBackup
optionally archives deleted or changed items during each backup and keeps
them sorted in an archive folder.

SmartBackup supports handling of multiple backup sets and can be automated
using iCal, Automator or for the unix pros using the commandline mode and
