  1. Arq: Online Backup for Mac to Amazon AWS Glacier and S3 | Haystack Software

    Mac app for backing up to S3 or Glacier. Interesting, compared to Backblaze, Mozy, etc.

  2. Help Center | Facebook

    How to download all of your “information” from your Facebook account. (vi Preoccupations)

  3. VaultPress

    Handy cloud-based backup for WordPress sites. Although I’d still want to keep your my own backup. I still don’t trust the cloud. (via Daring Fireball)

  4. PhoneView for iPhone - iPhone Disk Mode, SMS, Voicemail, Call History, Music, Photos, Notes Access - Ecamm Network

    Among other things, lets you export all of your iPhone SMSes. $20 saved me spending more time messing around with binary plist files, sqlite, etc.

  5. Tweetake

    Very simple way to get a file of all your Twitter tweets, friends, etc.

  6. Reocities , rising from the ashes - RIP Geocities…

    Wonderful - one guy raced to copy all of GeoCities. Worth reading ‘Making of’. He should win medals, awards, certificates, etc. (via Kottke)

  7. BackupMyTweets Home: Backup Your Twitter Account

    I suppose backing one bit of the cloud up to another unaccountable, third-party bit of it is better than nothing, but…

  8. Online Backup from Backblaze

    After reading poor reviews of on Cool Tools, I’m giving Backblaze, which got better reviews, a try. (Warning, annoying auto-play video.)

  9. MailSteward

    A pay-for Mac app that archives email into SQLite or MySQL databases. Looks pretty awesome for searchable backups. Need the pro version for large volumes of email (>100,000 messages).

  10. Jacobian’s jellyroll at master - GitHub

    “You keep personal data in all sorts of places on the internets. Jellyroll brings them together onto your own site.” Sounds good, but haven’t tried it. (via Blech)

  11. Flashbake: Free version-control for writers using git - Boing Boing

    Sounds nice and some lovely little features like saving info about the weather, etc when it automatically checks your files in. Contextual backup.

  12. chaff. Aggregation and the Edge.

    “Is there a space for a piece of user-installable software, like Movable Type or Wordpress, that aggregates their data from sites across the web, and then presents it as a site?” Yes. Maybe even a WordPress plugin…?

  13. Adactio: Journal—Magnoliloss

    On backing up his Magnolia links and wondering how to back up the rest of his distributed online life. (via Blech)

  14. Mathusalem - Google Code

    Interesting-sounding backup utility for Mac OS X. Backs up in the background to “local drives, iDisk, WebDAV, AFP, SMB, FTP, SFTP or Amazon S3”. Maybe for when StrongSpace finally disappears. (via Tom Taylor on Twitter)


    Launching soon, a backup for Flickr and weblogs. Google Docs, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook backup promised. As I said earlier, all these sites should offer this service by default. (via Blech)

  16. Google Open Source Blog: Google Blog Converters 1.0 Released

    Excellent - scripts to convert between Blogger, LiveJournal, MovableType and WordPress. I reckon every single online service should have an “Export” button and nag you if you haven’t backed-up in a while. (via Tom Taylor)

  17. Slashdot | Why Mirroring Is Not a Backup Solution

    And why most of us entrusting our creative output to third-party sites is a bad idea. (via Lee)

  18. Online Backup, Data Backup & Remote Backup Solutions from – Welcome

    One more online backup solution. Heard good things about this in the past I think. [UPDATE: Cool Tools readers gave it the thumbs down.]

  19. CrashPlan – Automatic Offsite Backup » Features - Tech Specs

    Another online backup thing, to backup to your own machine elsewhere or (for a subscription) to their server.

  20. TidBITS Safe Computing: Backblaze Launches Mac Beta of Online Backup Service

    Looks like a great online backup service, currently in private beta. (via Daring Fireball)

  21. Mozy Online Backup: Simple, Automatic, Secure

    Simple-sounding online backup service for Windows or Mac. (via Haddock) (UPDATE, 2009: Heard not so good feedback about it, trying Backblaze instead.)

  22. How to Backup Your DVD Movies

    Excellent screencast on how to back up DVDs on your Mac. (via Daring Fireball)

  23. Magpiebrain » Blog Archive » Trouble Free Backups, Part One - rsync and Strongspace

    Again, just in case I start using Strongspace, saves me Googling again.

  24. Strongspace Weblog - Syncing With Rsync

    In case I start using Strongspace and forget where to find these instructions.

  25. Mysql automatic backup script - AutoMySQLBackup

    Looks very handy, and better than my too ad hoc approach.

  26. Stuff I Find Interesting - Rsync, RsyncX 2.1 & OS X

    Never got round to looking into this, but when I do…

  27. Everything Linux - A Tutorial on Using rsync

    Never got round to looking into this, but when I do…

  28. Easy Automated Snapshot-Style Backups with Rsync

    Never got round to looking into this, but when I do…
