11-20-09 MimMac 1.10 released

MimMac 1.10 (click to download - 1.22MB)
Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5, and 10.6 compatible.

This is a required update for use with Mac OS X 10.6, earlier versions of MimMac will not work properly in Snow Leopard!

Clones, backups, and data synchronization made easy.
MimMac is a fast, easy-to-use, and comprehensive backup and cloning utility, designed to make backing up, synchronizing, merging, and cloning your data as painless as possible. With MimMac, there's no need to set up complex scripts, or navigate a bloated interface just to do simple tasks such as running multiple simultaneous operations or excluding items from your backup operation(s) -- everything is ready at hand in MimMac's straight-forward and compact interface.

Gain control of your data.
With MimMac's myriad of options, filters, exclusions, and mirroring capabilities, you have complete control over exactly what gets backed up, and what doesn't. MimMac also performs incremental backups automatically, thus making your repetitive backups quick and painless. And when coupled with its ability to check and enable ownership on destination volumes, as well as repair permissions on source volumes, you can be assured that your system clones will not only be bootable, but faithful to the original.

Built from the ground up.
MimMac is not a front-end for any pre-existing command line backup utilities; its backup engine was built from the ground up using Cocoa. As such, MimMac does not depend upon any third-parties in order to do its job.

Powerful, yet affordable.
Suffering the effects of lost data can be a costly venture, but backing up your data shouldn't be. That is why MimMac includes a free 20-day trial, and a full single-machine license is only $10.

MimMac is a Universal Binary (PPC and Intel compatible), requires at least OS 10.4 and is Leopard and Snow Leopard Compatible.

Version 1.10 Additions

  • Added full support for OS X 10.6 - this is a required update, older versions of MimMac will not work properly in 10.6.
  • Support for 10.3.9 has been dropped. A special version of MimMac 1.8.9 will be released in the future for Panther users.
  • MimMac now automatically updates the dyld shared cache of a clone.
  • Fixed an issue that caused MimMac to incorrectly report that an external drive was ignoring ownership of files in OS X 10.4.
  • Many internal backup engine updates and optimizations.
  • MimMac no longer forces serial number activation.
  • MimMac now only blesses a clone if the source was the boot drive.
  • Optimized MimMac's ability to modify attributes of symbolic links in Leopard and Snow Leopard.
  • Updated the registration engine.

Main Features

  • Makes bootable clones of any locally mounted volumes.
  • Makes incremental backups automatically in order save time and effort.
  • Allows you to copy only items that have been added to source, or modified on the source, or both.
  • Provides comprehensive date filters for even more specific control.
  • Allows you to select any number of files/folders to be excluded from a backup operation, regardless of how deep they may be in the folder hierarchy.
  • Allows you to run as many simultaneous backup operations as you want, including both multiple sources to a single destination, as well as multiple sets of sources and destinations.
  • Allows you to save your source and destination sets for quick loading -- simply double-clicking on a backup set file launches MimMac and loads your sources and destinations sets, and their prospective options and filter settings.
  • Provides mirroring capabilities so that items on the destination that no longer exist on the source will be removed, making the destination an exact copy of the source.
  • Can automatically repair permissions on the source volume(s).
  • Automatically blesses clones so that they are immediately available for booting.
  • If needed, MimMac automatically disables and re-enables Spotlight on both the source and destination volumes in order to prevent Spotlight from slowing down, or conflicting with MimMac.
  • Automatically verifies the format of destination drives in order to prevent permissions problems or clones that won't boot.
  • Copies file metadata, including BSD flags and HFS+ Access Control Lists.
  • Does an initial scan of target data to get an accurate count of the number of items, and total size before starting the copy operation.
  • Gives accurate backup progress information in real time, as well as an estimated time until completion.
  • Can resolve aliases and symbolic links on both the source and destination.
  • Intel and PPC native.
