“Apple is readying Backup 3, a major upgrade to the backup software included with the company’s .Mac internet services, Think Secret has learned. The company is currently testing the new version, code-named Predator, which will incorporate a number of new features,” Nick dePlume reportss for Think Secret.
dePlume reportss, “In Backup 3, users will be able to create and customize multiple ‘plans’ for each backup destination, such as an iDisk, hard drive, or removable media; earlier versions of Backup allow only a single plan for each target location. (Backup plans, called ‘sets’ in the current release, specify the files that should be backed up, where the backup should go, and when it should take place.)
Backup 3 will also feature incremental backups and other new features which dePlume covers in the full article here.
