Intego, the Macintosh security specialist, is proud to announce that Intego Personal Backup X4 has been nominated for the 2006 Macworld Awards by Macworld magazine UK. The program, which can manually or automatically back up files, synchronize data between two computers or volumes, and clone bootable Mac OS X volumes, has been nominated in the Editors´ Choice: Consumer Software category. The awards ceremony will be held at the Royal Courts of Justice, London, on June 29, 2006.
“We are honored that Personal Backup X4 has been nominated for this award,” said Laurent Marteau, CEO, Intego. “This is one of our most popular programs, and it is always rewarding to see that not only users but also experienced journalists recognize the work and the high standards that go into our software.”
Personal Backup X4, a Universal application that runs on Macs using PowerPC or Intel processors, offers backups, synchronizations and clones with a single mouse-click. Users can create scripts and define exceptions, select multiple sources, set schedules, and even clone their Mac OS X startup volume to ensure they have a bootable backup at all times.
Backups can run automatically at preset times or at regular intervals, or users can run them manually by selecting a script from a special Intego menu. The program recognizes any HFS, HFS+, or UFS volume, and all data is copied in Finder format, enabling users to immediately recover backup files without performing complicated restore procedures.
