Intego Backup Express 1.0 – New Mac App

Intego Backup Express goes beyond Mac OS X’s built-in backup capability, allowing users to back up their valuable files to external hard drives, DVDs, network volumes and more. For a limited time, Backup Express is available for only $9.99 (USD), a 33% reduction from the regular price of $14.99 (USD).

Users can back up any or all of the files in their home folder, or on disks or volumes for which they have permissions, and do so at the time and/or frequency of their choice. Users can create backup scripts and set schedules so backups run automatically, even in the background, or run their scripts with a single click.

They can run incremental backups so only new and changed files get copied. They can exclude files they don’t want to back up, and can keep multiple versions of files, or only the latest versions. And they can synchronize folders or volumes between any two Macs, such as a desktop Mac and a laptop.


Intego Backup Express can back up files from a user’s home folder, or disks or volumes for which they have permissions, to most media, including:

* Partitions or volumes on your hard drive

* AirPort disks (hard disks connected to Apple’s AirPort Extreme or Time Capsule base station)
