I wish SmartWare wasn’t so **bleep** smart.
I love the idea of having a device that backs up changes to my files every time I plug it in. And that it keeps the five latest versions. However…
* the sonofagun is s l o w. The interface takes forevuhhhhh to paint.
* The “category” idea is totally lame, yet another example of software engineers trying to be too clever. (The most egregious example of this phenomenon is Google Mail’s “conversation view”).
I want backup software that springs into action as soon as I plug in my external drive (a la SmartWare), but allows me to select what I want to backup by DIRECTORY, not CATEGORY. That will automatically backup changes and keep several versions, and will allow me to restore individual files and directories, not CATEGORIES. And I want it to perform like it’s 2010, not 1969.
Anyone know of any software that fits that description?
