Ever since I got a monster drive for my home server (which, btw, powers this website) I have been looking for a good backup solution for OS X. This morning it appears I have found one: PSyncX While I have just set up a simple backup to test it, it appears that this utility will do exactly what I needed to keep a remote copy of my data. 🙂
Ok, this will sound like a commercial – but in fear of letting this blog become too stale to even feed to the ducks in my neighborhood,
I’m gonna publish this.
Have you ever wondered where all your hard drive space went? My laptop currently has an 80 GB drive in it, and it’s about 75% full. In trying to discover where all the drive space went, I found this utility called jdiskReport. It will analyze the files on your hard drive right now and produce pretty clickable graphs showing what directories on your drive are using the most space. This makes it very easy to identify the hogs and remove them.
