BounceBack Pro 5.0 for Mac OS X ships

CMS Products, Inc., today shipped its new BounceBack Professional 5.0 software for Mac OS X, now the fastest backup and restore software on Mac OS X and localized in five new languages.

For the first time, the software used to create the world’s easiest backup and restore solution with any external FireWire drive is available in German, French, Dutch, Italian and Spanish, in addition to English. Performance-optimized BounceBack Professional 5.0 is now the fastest backup and restore software on Mac OS X. BounceBack Professional 5.0 creates a complete system that externally boots in a single keystroke and restores in a single button click. BounceBack Professional 5.0 for Mac OS X is available immediately directly from CMS Products for a suggested retail price of $79 and will also be sold through resellers in the US, Canada and across Europe.

“BounceBack Professional turns an external FireWire drive into the easiest, and now the fastest, backup and restore system available for Mac OS X,” said Ken Burke, president of CMS Products, Inc. in the press release. “We’re also extremely proud to offer BounceBack Professional internationally in five new languages. The Macintosh community is a global community and BounceBack Professional takes full advantage of Mac OS X technology by providing a bootable system in case of a disaster. Now, high-performance BounceBack Professional on Mac OS X is ‘the’ winning combination for today’s Mac user.”

The easy to use BounceBack Professional is a simple way to quickly recover from a disaster. BounceBack Professional only takes a few steps to select a FireWire drive as the designated backup drive. Once identified as the BounceBack Professional device, CMS Products’ patent-pending “Automatic Launcher” technology makes backing up a breeze by automatically sensing when the drive is connected and backing up the system.

Additional incremental backups are automatic with BounceBack Professional simply by plugging in the designated drive. BounceBack Professional can activate incremental backups with a connected desktop FireWire drive on a designated schedule or on power-up.

Bouncing back from disaster is easy too, with capabilities to boot externally in a single keystroke, restore an entire system with one button click, or just drag-and-drop desired files and folders. Booting from the external backup allows users to “run” their system on any Mac OS X machine and quickly restore files or an entire system. To take advantage of this Mac-only feature, simply hold down the Option key while powering-up or restarting the computer.

  1. The new I-mac will need bounceback when it falls over every time you try to attach one of the 10 cables needed to run the machine.

    In the wonderful world of windows we design our machines to expand and grow with new technology (like the soon to be released Longhorn) while Apple users are locked into over priced out dated technology that can not be up dated.

  2. LOL Sputnik,

    I did not know that – in addition to be a troll – you were also disabled and with muscular dystrophy.

    ROFLMAO: Soon to be released WHAT? Longhorn has been nurtured. As a matter of fact it will NEVER be released, at least not what was promised last year.

    You can package crap in various boxes and formats but inside is still crap.

    Anyway, thanks for the chance to bash Windows and the below crap average quality PC manufacturers products.

    PS
    Again: please share what you smoke. Must be great.

  3. Sputnik! Buddy! Long time no see. Where’ve you been hiding? We’ve missed your Bagdhad Bob style commentary. Seriously! It’s so nice to hear from someone who really is brainwashed once in a while. Thanks, you made my day, and it’s only 9:45am!

    “wonderful world of windows” ROTFLMAO

    That’s a good one! hehehe

  4. Sputnik,

    You need ONE cable to use the new iMac; the power cable.

    Keyboard & Mouse can be Bluetooth so what’s your point?

    And I’m curious to know what you smoke too – my guess is opium.

  5. external firewire hard disk?
    If you need one, the only thing that would be intrusive would be the power cord for the external drive. This is no more problematic than the powercord for the iMac itself.

    ipod connection?
    This cable is only between the iMac and the iPod, I seriously doubt it would be in the way at all.

    legacy drive support?
    Why?

    ethernet cable?
    Airport Card.

    Granted. But if someone walks infront of my desk and acidentally pulls the power cord out of my lcd monitor, all i loose is my display.

    ipod connection?
    This cable is only between the iMac and the iPod, I seriously doubt it would be in the way at all.

    If you don’t wish to keep you ipod on your desk, it would.

    legacy drive support?
    Why?

    Because sometimes you just need it.

    many reasons. zip, jaz, usb drives that have a limited voltage supply (i.e. the keyboard can’t supply enough juice).

    ethernet cable?
    Airport Card.

    so i have to spend another �300 on a base station and card. shurley, if thats the defacto network solution it should be included as standard.

    p.s. still like them though and i recon i’d have to test drive one first before i buy. i bought a 1st gen ibook blind and (even though i love the design) i won’t make that mistake again. while i’m no that train of thought the G5 iMac is cheaper than the original iBook. Awesome.

  7. O.K.

    Everything gets routed through the opening through which the power cord runs, completely in line with the power cord, not sticking out the side.
    I think they make ethernet cable long enough to accomadate this feature.

    Ipod cable is pretty small and light weight.

    Better than having a tin box taking up space.

    get the airport connection later.

  8. Apologies for my bad spelling 101. Given the time i’ve got to write these things your likely to find moor. Keep those eye’s pealed eh! Dun’t wunt to mis em!

    ejonesradio – now i understand, work is not real.

    You lot are tetchy ar’nt ya!

    Btw not convinced about the small foot size either. My 17″ LCD really unstable and thats got a huge footprint in comparison to the G5 iMac.

    I think I’d still have to test run one 1st before I get a pass to buy one from her in doors.

  9. Is the G5 iMac cable/port “problem” really some fault with Apple’s design or merely a reactive, shortsighted blame inhibiting people from creatively finding ways to handle issues they have with it?

    No single solution would satisfy everyone so why make a fuss, especially over something like this? Deal with it, or maybe you have no energy left after whining it away?
