Snap Backup

Snap Backup 5.6

This program helps you back up files and folders from your Mac.

Snap Backup is a program that enables you to create backup files containing the documents and folders within your Mac. This application provides you with a user-friendly interface, offers you simple to configure backup settings, and gets the job done within moments.

The utility was designed in such a way that it makes it easy for Mac users without much computer experience to get the results they need. You just need to select the files and folders you wish to back up, choose the destination folder for the backup file, and click the Backup Now button.

This program creates a compressed file (ZIP) containing the backed up data and saves it to the selected destination directory. You can use the Mac's default unarchiver (Archive Utility) to extract the backed up files.

I like the fact that the application gives you access to various backup settings. For instance, you can choose the preferred file name format (the name of the created archive file), enable backup log option, etc.

As a conclusion, Snap Backup is a capable and intuitive program that comes in handy whenever you wish back up your valuable documents. The app is very simple to use, keeps a log with all recent backup info, and is free of charge.
