Mac OS X Lion Time Machine capable of 'Local Snapshots' without external hard drive

9to5 Mac has uncovered another cool feature in OS X Lion: Apple's back up tool, Time Machine, will support backups to an internal hard drive. Dubbed 'Local Snapshots,' it sounds like it will be very similar to Versions, another new feature in OS X Lion that keeps track of changes to documents, and lets you revert to older versions. Local Snapshots, on the other hand, will take a snapshot of ...

YouTube Time Machine helps you reminisce with YouTube videos from a certain year

YTTM apparently stands for "YouTube Time Machine," although that's not specifically mentioned on the site. What it does is very easy to understand, though. You move a slider to a specific year between 1860 and 2010, and you get a bunch of YouTube videos related to that year. Yes, I said 1860 (that's not a typo). Not all hits are spot-on, though. When I chose 1972, I got a video from 1970. So, I g...

Screenshot Tour: free Comodo Time Machine lets you roll back your whole system

Comodo Time Machine isn't a "Time Machine" in the Apple sense of the word. Rather, it's a way to take a snapshot of your whole system in a certain state and then smoothly roll back to that state once you need it again. The main difference between Comodo and Windows' own snapshot system (restore points) is that Comodo rolls everything back. That means that, by default, all your data is include...

Giveaway: Altaro Oops!Backup is Time Machine for Windows

Let's start with a disclaimer: I'm strictly a Windows guy. Have never used a Mac. But I do know what Time Machine is supposed to do, and I was quite envious of my fellow Macheads when it was released. I have a serious backup fetish, and my combined backup strategy (remote + complete local mirroring) was lacking in just that one area -- intuitive versioning which stays out of your way but is the...

The Time Machine Screensaver

Sure, you make fun of the chintzy Time Machine animation when you're out to sushi with your geek friends, but secretly you adore it. When the night is late, and it's just you and your Mac, you turn on Time Machine simply to gaze longingly into its starry goodness. But don't you wish that you could just get that pesky Finder window out of the way, so you could stare into the full, unadulterated...

SuperDuper backup utility updated for Leopard

SuperDuper!, the long loved Mac backup utility, has finally been updated for Mac OS X Leopard. You might be wondering how SuperDuper! finds a niche even after Apple's own backup utility, Time Machine, has been integrated into every Mac with Leopard installed. The developers of SuperDuper! think of their relationship to Time Machine as complementary rather than competitive. Here's why: SuperDuper!...

Change Leopard's Time Machine schedule

Leopard's helpful backup tool, Time Machine, backs up your Mac every hour by default. However, that schedule may not suit your lifestyle. TimeMachineEditor is an application that allows you to configure a different interval for your backups. We like the granularity with which you can set Time Machine: "Once a day" (choose the hour), "Once a week" (choose the day and hour), "Once a month" (choose...

Time Machine: Leopard's best feature?

After having a peek at Apple's new guided Quicktime tour of Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, we're convinced that Time Machine alone is worth the upgrade price. Time Machine is Apple's new backup and recovery software, but it's actually quite a bit more than that. The program makes use of external storage devices (like, say, a USB 2.0 hard disk) to create backups of your entire file system. You can later ...

Apple previews Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard at WWDC

Apple today previewed the next major update to Mac OS X, version 10.5 (aka: Leopard), at their annual World Wide Developer Conference in California today. Our sister sites Engadget and TUAW covered the event well, but there are some great new features in this next version that are definitely worth a look here at DLS. The big 10 new features (with more secret ones promised) can be previewed at Appl...
