Mac backup software round-up

BackupA blog called Plasticsfuture has tests 17 different programs for making backups on a Mac and written up the results in an article called Mac Backup Software Harmful. Why harmful? It turns out that most Mac backup software will save your files but nuke some of the associated metadata. Of the 17 apps, only one gets a "Highly recommended" rating, and four get "Avoid at all cost." In the end, the choice is SuperDuper, a shareware app that's free for basic use or $27.95 if you need some extra features.
