    This is going to be a series of threads/polls with the main objective of finding out what applications the members of MacRumors use. These threads/polls are not meant for discussion on whether or not one application is better than another or to ask any questions about these particular applications. It's only purpose is to discuss what application you use (or don't use) as it pertains to the topic. The goal is to collect these series of threads in the end and compile a list of all the polls so that members can view what the members of MacRumors use most often. The applications listed in the poll are by no means definitive and/or complete. If you use another application, vote Other and post the name so others can look into it. Even if you don't use any of the applications listed, you can simply click None. I've tried to list as many applications as I could find for the particular topic. Some are paid, some are free. Some cover all versions of OS X, others only a few versions.

    ---------

    This particular thread focuses on Backup and Imaging software for OS X. These types of applications come in handy when your harddrive fails or when you've made a change to your system which is tough to reverse. Naturally it's always good practice to create a backup of your files no matter what. Some of these applications will take multiple approaches in how they backup your harddrive and files. Which backup and imaging software do you use?

    I think this poll should allow more than one choice. I chose SuperDuper! but I use both SuperDuper! and Time Machine - they serve separate purposes. I also burn files to DVD for saving off-site.

    Boot Multiple Bootable .DMG like ISOs from USB? or CD/DVD

    Lovely poll. My question is in a similar direction :)

    Boot Multiple Bootable .DMG like ISOs from USB? or CD/DVD

    Boot Multiple Bootable .DMG from USB?

    Is there something like this for the IntelMac/Apple world?

    I have a Multi Boot CD/DVD that allows bootable Tools: Acronis, Partition Magic etc. I'd like to create something like this for my Mac world with certain "Bootable" apps.
    e.g. Super Duper, Disk Warrior, Drive Genius, Volume Works, iDefrag etc etc.

    A simple example of the same is the following article where I can drop ISOs as they are into a USB pen drive thats been prepared to boot a menu which can choose which ISO to boot next.
    It would be great if I can dump all ISOs / DMGs into one USB pen drive / HDD but I'd be okay with making a separate Mac & PC (Windows & Linux) Tool kit for booting.

    Boot Multiple ISO from USB (MultiBoot USB

    Thoughts? Anyone create / try / look at such Boot tools.

    Don't forget the rsync command line app that is standard on your mac, it is a powerful app for making backups.
