MacTuneUp - Creating Simple Backups of Files and Folders
Posted by - NA - on 16 July 2009 11:49 AM
Follow the steps below to create simple backups of files and folders using MacTuneUp 3.4.5:

In the unmodified copy item list, all files and folders on the first level (root level) of the source volume are listed. If you try to add an individual file or folder, which is inside a folder that already exists in the copy item list, the item won't be added because it will get copied anyway. Adding files or folders from other volumes, or items that are not on the first level of the source volume, can be done by:

1. By clicking the "Add..." button below the copy item list.

2. By doing a drag and drop from a Finder window to the copy item list.

If the new item doesn't already exist in the copy item list, and if the item is not located inside a folder that exists in the copy list already, the item will be added and marked up with "... " at the beginning of the the item path.

Example 1:
You want to create a clone of your hard drive, but don't want to copy all users folder, but only your own.
1. Choose the source and destination volume.
2. Remove the main "Users" folder from the copy item list (by selecting
"Users" and clicking the "Remove" button below the list).
3. Add the individual user folder as described.


Example 2:
A user wants to create a simple backup of some individual folders.
1. Choose the source and destination volume.
2. Remove all (unwanted) items from the copy list (Select all->Remove)
3. Add the individual user folder as described.
