Backup 2.0.1: Much more reliable

I am pleased to report that the recent Backup update released by Apple (exclusively through the .Mac web site for .Mac subscribers) appears to have fixed the reliability issues that plagued version 2.0 (at least in my configuration).

It’s been three days now and Backup has successfully archived all my essential files on an external FireWire hard drive at 11:45 am every day.

It’s amazing what a big difference bug fixes can make, isn’t it? One day, the application is a useless piece of crap. The next day, it’s a decent little application for automatic backups at regular intervals. It’s too bad Apple didn’t get it right for version 2.0.

I wonder how many users are willing to try the application again after having had to deal with messages such as “Backup failed because the file /@ cannot be read” (or something to that effect)…

The first time ain’t the greatest” was definitely an understatement there.

Now if only Apple could also fix AirPort in Panther
