Easy to use backup, archiving and cloning

SmartBackup is a backup application for OS X that is designed around ease of use, performance and flexibility. It gives you more control than Time Machine and is faster and easier to set up than its competitors.

Using SmartBackup you can backup a set of folders or files, or a whole volume, to a destination on an external harddrive, flashdrive or network share, and keep them up-to-date. You can also create a bootable clone of your whole system.

Built using modern OS X technologies

SmartBackup features a modern 64-bit sync engine that only copies what has changed after the first backup. And it makes sure that your precious metadata like Tags and label colours get backed up too.

Tidy archiving

SmartBackup archives deleted or changed files in an archive folder during the backup. You can search easily for all available versions of a file using SmartBackup and restore it with one click. Alternatively you can browse your backup and archive simply in the Finder. No proprietary formats involved.

Use Spotlight to define your backup

You can use Spotlight Saved Searches to define what you want to backup or what you want to exclude, a powerful way to simplify your backup configuration.


SmartBackup does not include any scheduling but makes it easy to automate your backup using iCal, Automator or launch it in commandline mode and include it in launchd items or scripts.
