MacUser - April 2007

Data Backup 3 review

"Data Backup 3's recognition that simplicity is a critical backup feature is obvious from the off, when it helpfully looks for attached devices to act as the default destination drive. If you have more than one, it defaults to that with the most free space."

Macworld UK - January 2007

Data Backup 2.1

"Creating customised backup plans and schedules is easy, inexpensive. Home users will find being able to clone their entire hard drive to a bootable volume especially useful, while small businesses will value the combination of schedules and versioned backups."

Macworld - December 2006

Data Backup 2.1 Review

"Other than the weak support for optical discs and a below-average synchronization feature—neither of which is crucial for backing up your data to hard drives—there's little not to like about Data Backup 2.1. It's a mature, capable backup application that should handle almost any single-computer backup task smoothly."

MacReview Zone - May 2003

Because you'd rather be the ant and not the grasshopper.

"As it stands, Data Backup gives you the best stuff for the lowest price in its category. In fact, we could all use some better habits with our data, even at a price that's tough to swallow. I don't exactly see Mac Halo going gold master anytime soon, do you?"
