    I'm on MBP with Snow Leopard 10.6.1

    I am looking for a backup solution that:
    - can backup to a network destination
    - doesn't backup to a compressed file (i need to be able to access the backup from another (Non-Mac)-computer on the network)...
    - does both syncronization and incremental backup
    - allows me to filter the backup (ie. I want to backup my Documents, but not files in a certain directory and not files larger than xx MB and not files with a certain extension)...
    - runs in the background and can perform a scheduled backup without user action

    Any hints?

    Best regards,

    I believe rsync also does what you need. It's command-line, though.

    I've tried quite a lot of free- and shareware products now.
    But so far I only managed to get FoldersSyncronizer to do the job that I wanted...

    It lets me do unattended scheduled backups to my NAS - almost without hassle (had to manually edit the setup file to mount my volume correctly). So now it automatically mounts my volume if not mounted, it stores my data so I can access them from the network.
    Basically everything I asked for.

    40US$ - I can live with that ;-)

    Thanks anyway for your input!

    Best regards,
