I have made a variety of Mac Applications using various programming languages and am happy to share them with you. Some are free for your personal use. Others are available at the Mac App Store for a minimal price. I spend a great deal of time keeping all these up to date so please consider a donation so I can at least keep my system up to date, pay for bandwidth, and other costs. Enjoy!

BackupList+ 8.5.3 available now
BackupList+ is an all-purpose backup utility for OS X widely used by people who want a simple way of protecting their data without the hassles of complex software. It makes simple copies of files so you don't have to deal with proprietary archives; to restore your files you just copy them back from the backup destination when needed. It copies everything exactly as it is using a specially modified build of the rsync utility, preserving all critical OS X file meta data. You begin by selecting the type of backup, including full system clones, regular backups, incremental backups (like Time machine), or disk images. The concept is very simple but it also offers many more advanced options including writing your own rsync command line for specific situations not covered by the default settings.
This is the release version for 8.5.3 compatible only with OS 10.8 Mountain Lion and higher. For earlier Systems download version 8.4 below. It has many bug fixes and improvements. This version is completely rewritten to address bugs in OS 10.11 El Capitan, fixing issues with sparse bundle images, read only disk images, archive type backups and the selecting of source files. For information see the Help Book ... go to backupList+ > Help menu > backupList++ Help and read the "Check out great new features" section about how to transition from the version 8.4.
Compatible with OS 10.8 Mountain Lion and higher.
